Welcoming Afghan evacuees
It is expected that at least 50,000 Afghans will be evacuated to the United States through Operation Allies Welcome
, a federal program to coordinate efforts to support vulnerable Afghans, including those who worked alongside us in Afghanistan for the past two decades, as they safely resettle in the United States.
Welcome to Minnesota
The Minnesota Department of Human Services Resettlement Program is working closely with local agencies funded by the federal government to implement the program Afghan Placement Assistance (APA), and has developed a task force with representatives from counties and other state agencies, including the departments of Health, Education, Employment and Economic Development, the state Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans and the state Council on Disability, on a community preparation response.
