What we do
TXOR works alongside partner agencies to drive innovative, client-centered programs through collaborative models that empower rather than duplicate. The goal of TXOR is to build capacity and develop resource-based stakeholder relationships with state and federal leaders to elevate and advocate for the work of partners and outcomes of refugee clients.
TXOR oversees the administration of the Cash and Medical Assistance (CMA) and Refugee Support Services (RSS), which includes disbursing funding to local resettlement agencies and refugee service providers across the state, determining eligibility, programmatic monitoring for compliance, program design, research and evaluation, database management, technical assistance, capacity building, and resource development.

REFUGEE CASH ASSISTANCE (RCA)
The Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) program provides short-term cash assistance to ORR-eligible individuals as they pursue employment and self-sufficiency. This assistance is only available to ORR-eligible individuals who are within the income eligibility standards and ineligible for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
REFUGEE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE (RMA)
The Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA) program provides access to healthcare for individuals who are ineligible for Medicaid and enables refugees to receive a Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA) upon arrival in the U.S. States. TXOR partners closely with the Medical Replacement Designee’s office, which contracts with local public and private health clinics to carry out the medical screening. The goal of this program is to protect the public health of communities and to promote the successful resettlement of refugees and their capacity to thrive.
REFUGEE SUPPORT SERVICES
Refugee Support Services assist refugees in their resettlement to the United States through an array of services designed to promote self-sufficiency and meaningful integration. These include employability services, English Language Instruction (ELI), case management, services to older refugees, refugee youth mentoring, and more, focused on clients’ first sixty months (approximately five years) in the United States.
