About Supplemental Services

The Supplemental Services Program provides additional resources to communities where refugee services are insufficient. When a community experiences a sudden and unexpected migration of refugees, supplemental services programs provide funding for culturally appropriate services. Due to the immediacy of arrivals and their need for assistance, funding is intended to enhance the allocation of social services within the state.

Services include:

  • Case management
  • Health and mental health services
  • English as a Second Language
  • Job placement/employment
  • Life skills workshops
  • Nutrition education
  • Education for mothers of pre-school children
  • After-school programs
  • Orientation, interpretation and translation

Public and private non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations and community organizations that meet the statutory eligibility requirements may apply for grants to serve recently arrived refugees and secondary migrant refugees.
