The Matching Grant program provides an alternate approach to state-administered resettlement assistance. The program's goal is to help refugees (and other appropriate individuals) attain self-sufficiency within four months after arrival without access to public cash assistance. Participating agencies agree to match the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) grant with cash and in-kind contributions.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must not be a US citizen, but a refugee who has been granted asylum; one that is Haitian, Cuban or Amerasian; or, one that is a victim of trafficking.
