Matching Grant Program

The Matching Grant Program is an alternative to public cash assistance providing services to enable eligible populations (refugees, asylees, Cuban and Haitian entrants, Victims of Severe Forms of Trafficking, and Special Immigrant Visa Holders (SIVs)) to become economically self-sufficient within 120 to 180 days of program eligibility. Services under this program include, but are not limited to, case management, employment services, maintenance assistance and cash allowance, and administration. Self-sufficiency must be achieved without accessing public cash assistance.

Matching Grant is a federally-funded program operated under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Refugee Resettlement. ECAC operates the Matching Grant program through the Ethiopian Community Development Council.
