The CDSS’ RPB developed ASIP to support the transition of recent Afghan newcomers to long-term housing in California following the implementation of Operation Allies Welcome (OAW) in July 2021. ASIP was designed to provide time-limited housing-focused services and rental subsidies to help Afghan newcomers in need stabilize and move towards self-sufficiency. The program has been largely successful with nearly 1,500 ASIP applications approved and over 5,700 individuals receiving ASIP support. As we near the end of this time-limited program, RPB will continue to work with our statewide ASIP administrator, Catholic Charities Dioceses of San Diego (CCDSD), to provide services to ASIP recipients until the sunset of ASIP on September 30, 2023.
Information for Current Participants
The application submission window for ASIP closed on September 30, 2022. Current ASIP recipients who enrolled in the program prior to September 30, 2022, are eligible to receive rental assistance for a maximum of 12 months from the date of first approval, contingent upon demonstrated need and available funding. CCDSD will continue to make recertification determinations for current ASIP recipients at three-month intervals and recipients must provide accurate and necessary information to CCDSD regarding the need for continued assistance. Recertification notices will include information on each recipient’s remaining months of eligibility and reflect the increased portion of rent the recipient is responsible for as they move towards attaining self-sufficiency.
All ASIP payments will end by September 30, 2023, with the exact termination date contingent upon when an ASIP recipient entered the program and recertification determinations. We continue to encourage ASIP recipient clients with securing employment and developing increased self-sufficiency during the remaining months of ASIP so that these individuals can attain stability and continue to thrive upon the sunset of the program.
