The primary focus of the NC Refugee Assistance Program is economic self-sufficiency as soon as possible. The NC Refugee Assistance Program (RAP) consists of two primary service areas – refugee public assistance and refugee social services. The NC-RAP also includes other discretionary grant funded programs. They are: assistance to public schools for educational support to refugee children (School Impact), targeted employment assistance in Guilford and Mecklenburg counties (Targeted Assistance Grant), aging services to older refugees, preventive health screening and targeted services to certain populations-the Hmong and Cuban/Haitians.
