SCHUMER ANNOUNCES OVER $1.4M IN FEDERAL FUNDING FOR LINCOLN HALL IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY

Funding Will Be Used To Support Lincoln Hall Family Reunification Program 

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer today announced $1,485,075 in federal funding for Lincoln Hall in Westchester County. The funding was allocated through the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Families and Children Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Specifically, Lincoln Hall will use the funding to support their Family Reunification Program.

“Lincoln Hall’s Family Reunification Program has done incredible work reconnecting children with relatives, putting their case management and clinical assessment best practices to the test,” said Senator Schumer. “I will continue to make sure that programs like this, and others sponsored by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, remain fully funded and our children are given every opportunity to succeed.”

The Office of Refugee Resettlement provides new populations with the opportunity to achieve their full potential in the United States. ORR programs provide people in need with critical resources to assist them in becoming integrated members of American society. The Office of Refugee Resettlement funds an array of formula and discretionary programs to states, voluntary agencies, and Mutual Assistance Associations.  Standard reporting forms for all federal grants, including Formula, Discretionary, and Match Grant, are available at www.acf.hhs.gov.
