Executive Summary

The Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP) proposes to have 20 AmeriCorps members who will develop, implement, and provide employment services and extended supportive services for newly arrived refugees in the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for delivering expanded supportive services and conducting extensive employer outreach, resulting in improved employment outcomes for refugees and increased job retention and durable self-sufficiency.

This program will focus on the Corporation for National and Community Services' (CNCS) focus area of Economic Opportunity. The CNCS investment of $268,600 will be matched with $140,000 in private funding.
