U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program: Ask the Experts

Friday, Feb. 26, 2016

The refugee resettlement program, created in 1980, has long been a partnership among federal, state and nonprofits, including refugee-led organizations. In this webinar, presenters from the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services discuss their roles in managing the domestic refugee resettlement program and how they work with state government. The briefing includes updates on current trends in refugee flows; anticipated arrivals in the coming year; and any updates on refugee populations and the financing and oversight of the program. How is the role evolving for state government? What are states’ priorities and concerns? How can federal agencies strengthen the consultation process and sharing of best practices with states?
