Funding Available for Supporting Holocaust Survivors
Supported by a recent AoA/ACL grant, the Jewish Federations of North America is accepting requests for proposals for the provision of person-centered, trauma-informed supportive services for Holocaust survivors in the U.S. by local aging and community groups.
A description of the RFP process and details about two informational conference calls can be found at www.HolocaustSurvivorCare.org. The deadline to express intent to apply is November 13, 2015 and the application is due December 2, 2015.
In October, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living awarded JFNA $12 million over 5 years, pending the availability of federal funds, to advance innovations in person-centered, trauma-informed (PCTI) supportive services for Holocaust Survivors. JFNA's Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care will achieve its objectives in two ways: 1) the RFP process for subgrantees to promote local innovations in PCTI services, and 2) technical assistance for subgrantees and other organizations to learn how to incorporate PCTI-based services for Holocaust survivors into agency operations and increase capacity to serve and support Holocaust survivors and other victims of trauma using PCTI-based principles.
