The Jewish Federations of North America’s (JFNA) Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care has announced the release of its request for proposals (RFPs) for the expansion of person-centered, trauma-informed services for Holocaust survivors throughout the United States.

LeadingAge is a partner on the initiative, which helps Holocaust survivors live independently with dignity and comfort in their homes and communities.

The application, RFP, program guidelines and information about eligibility can be found at www.holocaustsurvivorcare.org. Applicants must submit an intent to apply by July 14 and submit the application by Aug. 22.

The federal grant program was Launched in 2015 in partnership with The Jewish Federations of North America, the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies and the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany. It is the result of successful advocacy to Congress and the administration, as well as a successful philanthropic campaign to raise funds to help the nation’s aging Holocaust survivors. JFNA will award approximately 20 sub-grants with funding from the federal government and philanthropic efforts as part of the third RFP funding cycle of the grant program.
