Sample Matching Grant Onboarding Guide

The Matching Grant program (MG) helps refugees and other Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR)-eligible populations overcome barriers and quickly find jobs. Since 1979, the goal of MG has been to facilitate refugee family integration and self-sufficiency through employment—by providing case management, English language training, and employment services over a 240-day service period, all without accessing cash assistance programs. The program is a public-private partnership, enabling communities to offer direct support to the program through donations, volunteer work, and mentorship. 

This Matching Grant Onboarding Guide is a framework for onboarding new staff members who will provide MG services. It is meant to be customized to include organization-specific training, allowing you to incorporate your own materials using the “Link to Agency Guidance” fields located at the end of the guide. This guide shares reading materials, recorded webinars, and other resources to complement your agency’s specific onboarding activities. The onboarding process and included activities can be modified based on each staff member’s prior experience.
