  • Request for Application for the Refugee School Impact Grant
    The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) is issuing a Request for Application (RFA) for the Refugee School Impact Grant (RSIG) that is funded by the United States (U.S.) Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). The RSIG will be a two-year grant with two annual budget periods that will begin on August 15, 2014 and end on August 14, 2016 . The focus of the grant is to provide additional educational services (i.e., after- school tutorials, summer school, and English language learner classes) to refugee students that have been in the U.S. three years or less. Eligibility for RSIG funds is limited to school districts in impacted counties (Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, Sacramento, Santa Clara, San Diego, San Francisco, and Stanislaus) that have received significant numbers of refugee school-age children within federal fiscal years 2010-12. The CDSS is anticipated to receive $1,000,000 for the first year of the grant and will award grants ranging from $95,000 to $150,000.
