ECDC was established in 1983 as a community-based organization (CBO) to respond to the needs of a growing Ethiopian community in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. In 1991, ECDC became the first CBO authorized by the Department of State to resettle refugees through a network of African CBOs across the U.S. The Matching Grant Program is a public/private partnership program funded through the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). The program helps refugees and other ORR-eligible populations overcome barriers, obtain jobs within 180 to 240 days of the program service period, and become financially independent and self-sufficient without accessing state cash assistance programs. ECDC has been successfully administering the program since 1995.
