Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA care providers and community and faith-based organizations to provide foster care services for foreign youth. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to four weeks to complete. Applicants may apply to provide Long Term Foster Care (LTFC) in one or more of the following categories: basic foster care, therapeutic foster care, basic group home (extended care), and/or therapeutic group home.

ORR is announcing this FOA to seek long term foster care (LTFC) providers.  LTFC providers are required to be licensed in the state in which they are located to provide foster care services and are required to meet the needs of UAC by providing quality care in a community setting.  UAC who may qualify for placement in LTFC include the following: UAC between the ages of 0-17 years of age; sibling groups; pregnant/parenting teens; and/or UAC who are especially vulnerable or with other needs.

Long Term Foster Care (LTFC) types vary depending on the placement setting and level of care provided.  Categories include the following: basic foster care, therapeutic foster care, basic group home (extended care), and/or therapeutic group home.  Applicants can apply for one, multiple, or all levels of care under this FOA:

  • Basic foster care: UAC resides with an unrelated licensed foster parent(s) and requires only the minimal services required in a licensed foster care setting.
  • Therapeutic foster care: UAC resides with an unrelated licensed foster parent(s) but receives additional treatment services and/or supervision specific to the UAC's identified treatment needs.  UAC with significant emotional, behavioral, medical, and/or developmental needs receive structured treatment within a therapeutic foster care setting.
  • Basic group home: UAC resides in a group care living arrangement with a designated house parent(s) and/or staff.  This setting is used for those UAC who do not wish to be placed in a family setting.
  • Therapeutic group home: UAC resides in a group care living arrangement with a designated house parent(s) and/or staff.  This setting is used for those UAC who have difficulties within a family setting and require therapeutic services/interventions because of significant emotional, behavioral, medical, and/or developmental needs.  The UAC receives additional treatment services and/or supervision specific to the UAC identified treatment needs.

Applicants not currently registered in SAM are strongly encouraged to register at least 11 days prior to the due date for the funding opportunity.
