Refugee Career Pathways Program: The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invites eligible entities to submit competitive grant applications for the Refugee Career Pathways (RCP) program. In accordance with the Afghan Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022, RCP programs funded under this NOFO will serve nationals of Afghanistan for whom refugee and entrant assistance is authorized who entered the United States on or after July 31, 2021. Through the RCP program, ORR will provide funding to enable eligible Afghan entrants to obtain self-sufficiency by obtaining the means to secure professional or skilled employment drawing upon previously acquired knowledge, skills, and experience. Under the RCP program, the primary focus is to assist refugees and other eligible populations in learning about career pathways and developing individualized plans to gain employment and advance within their chosen career field. Allowable activities will include case management, training and technical assistance, specialized English language training, and mentoring. In addition, eligible participants may receive financial assistance for costs related to the establishment or reestablishment of credentials, such as obtaining educational credits or enrollment in required certification programs. ORR is interested in programs that advance opportunities for Afghan women and will award bonus points to applications that include these activities.
