County Refugee Program Guidelines

The County Refugee Program Guidelines have been developed to better assist counties that receive Refugee Social Services, Targeted Assistance and other federal Office of Refugee Resettlement funds to operate their refugee programs. These Guidelines supersede those that were previously issued in Refugee Coordinator Letter 99-08, dated April 29, 1999.

The Guidelines and Exhibits are in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Please see Tips for Using Adobe PDF Files for details.

If you have any questions regarding the Guidelines, please send an email to RPB@dss.ca.gov. Please use the Contact Usfor web site related questions or comments.
