The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), announces funding for the Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program (RAPP).
Organizations funded under RAPP implement strategies that encourage the development of agricultural and food systems related
services that will improve the livelihoods, physically and economically, of refugee families.
These strategies work to provide sustainable and/or supplemental income, improved access to healthy foods and better nutrition, psychosocial development, and enhanced integration into communities by refugee families.
Required activities under RAPP include:
1) Access to land; 2) Farming Production; 3) Training and Technical Assistance; and 4) Coordination with the Refugee Resettlement Community.
