Under a federal grant from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the Refugee Health Screening Clinic provides services to refugees relocating to the Austin/Travis County area. Services are also provided to asylees (individuals who are allowed to stay permanently in safety in the United States), Cubans and Hattians who enter the US under the Cuban Adjustment Act, Special Immigration Visas and Certified Victims of Human Trafficking.  Clients are eligible for one year after their date of arrival. The date of arrival is either when approved for immigration status or when a person entered the country. Services are free for eligible clients.
