Impact Story Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants
Kazanas Development Strategies is our go-to for high-quality federal and state grant proposals.
For the past 6 years, we have entrusted them with the renewal applications for our US Department of Health and Human Services/Office of Refugee Resettlement contract, our US Department of Justice/Office for Victims of Crime contract, and State of CT VOCA contract. These grants are vital as they support CIRI’s services for foreign-born victims of trafficking, domestic and sexual violence, and survivors of state-sponsored torture.

Our clients are on the front line of the most pressing issues facing their communities. They are champions against income inequality, homelessness and housing insecurity, healthcare disparity, racial and gender justice, community violence, and educational achievement gaps in some of the most under-resourced communities in Connecticut and beyond.
