I just came across this very useful map for FY2013-2014 at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) to help you research what is happening with the Refugee Resettlement program in your state.
When you go to the site and click on your state, all of the federal money flowing there is available as well as a list of locations where refugees are resettled with names and contact information for those doing the resettlement.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for you to learn about the program where you live. I know it’s an overused expression, but knowledge is power. And, that is why we started this blog in the first place to help you gain that knowledge.
ORR Regional Offices
In 2013, ORR Director Eskinder Negash, announced the creation of Regional refugee resettlement offices to coordinate state offices. At that time there were regional refugee offices located within five of the ten Administration for Children and Family (ACF) offices.
ORR will open up to five regional offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, and San Francisco (and potentially additional regional locations).
