Helping U.S. refugee service providers collect, manage, analyze and use quality data.
The Future of META and the Refugee Technical Assistance Project
We are pleased to announce that beginning this month, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), in partnership with Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Service (LIRS), will lead the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) funded Refugee Technical Assistance Program (RTAP). RTAP will serve as a one-stop source for ORR-funded state refugee programs and service providers to find TA, training, information, resources, and research.
The goals of the program are to improve refugee service providers’ capacity to (1) provide evidence and strengths-based programming that addresses barriers refugees face in accessing mainstream and specialized services, education and employment; (2) measure the quality and effectiveness of those programs and; (3) communicate program results. RTAP will draw on the expertise of the META team and other resettlement and integration practitioners.
A new web site for RTAP will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can still access META’s Monitoring and Evaluation resources here on https://www.metasupport.org/ !
Questions can be sent to Interim RTAP Director, Jason.Crislip@rescue.org
