HHS – Refugee Career Pathways Program (2021)

Applications due: by June 1, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET

The goal of the Refugee Career Pathways (RCP) program is to support refugees in attaining the knowledge and resources needed to begin a professional career in their new communities. Existing job training programs for refugees often focus on supporting initial job placement, which may not be adequate to securing long-term self-sufficiency. The RCP program will assist refugees in beginning professional careers that provide not only a salary but also greater job security and the possibility of career advancement.
