FAA5.A Work Registration (WORW) : 07 TANF Refugee Program
07 TANF Refugee Program
The TANF Refugee Program (TARP) is designed to help CA eligible refugees gain employment and achieve self-sufficiency. The RP code displayed in the PAR/EXEM field on WORW identifies qualified refugees to Jobs. (See CA Work Program Requirements)
Jobs staff refer eligible participants to a Volunteer Agency in the county of residence. VOLAG staff familiar with the refugee's native language and culture immediately provides individualized job search and placement activities.
VOLAG and Jobs staff coordinate to provide supportive services to the participant, such as the following:
Clothing and food allowances
Child care financial assistance
The RP referral to Jobs is limited to a total of 12 months. At the end of the twelfth month, Jobs must notify the FAA LOM of the need to change the code in the PAR/EXEM field on WORW.
NOTE Jobs may determine that an RM referral should have been an RP refugee referral. When this occurs, Jobs requests the code change.
