Yes, ncurses supports this:

       The ncurses library includes facilities for responding to window resiz-
       ing events, e.g., when running in an xterm.  See the resizeterm(3X) and
       wresize(3X)  manual pages for details.  In addition, the library may be
       configured with a SIGWINCH handler.
