The virtual Statewide Asylee Orientation (SAO) would provide information for asylees through culturally and linguistically appropriate self-paced, evergreen, virtual online content. The learning modules would address four areas: eligibility for benefits (including cash, food, medical assistance, childcare, and housing and utilities); employment; social adjustment; and legal rights and responsibilities.
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Office of Equity, Refugee Programs Bureau (RPB), announces the Request for Application (RFA) for the Statewide Asylee Orientation Program (SAO) to provide a statewide virtual asylee orientation for California residents who have been granted asylum status by the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security or the U.S. Attorney General pursuant to U.S. Code Title 8, Section 1158. The virtual platform will be comprised of self-paced learning modules in appropriate languages and include information and instructions on how to navigate the county welfare system, and if feasible, referrals to other services and benefits
as appropriate. In coordination with local and statewide program partners, this orientation would provide content and outreach to recently granted asylees.
Specifically, CDSS is seeking qualified non-profit organizations to develop, produce, and effectively implement the virtual SAO to assist persons who are currently residing in California and are granted asylum by the United States
(U.S.) Attorney General or the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.
