Refugee Resettlement

Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP)
is a federally funded program that provides cash and medical assistance to refugees. An individual is considered a refugee for purposes of RRP if he or she fled from and cannot return to his or her place of national origin because of fear of persecution on account of race, religion or political opinion.

Only single individuals or couples without children are eligible for the RRP program, which is administered by the county welfare agencies for up to eight months, based on the refugee's date of entry into this country. All other refugees, if otherwise eligible, can receive assistance under the WFNJ program.
