Welcoming our new Afghan neighbors will take an all-hands-on deck approach, and community leaders and organizations across the country are stepping up to fill the diverse set of needs -- housing, transportation, employment, legal, education, English language training, community orientation and integration, wellness, and many other aspects of resettlement and inclusion. Afghan, diaspora, veteran, faith-based, and community organizations are working creatively to tap the outpouring of support from their fellow community members.
Following their first round of grants to address immediate housing and relocation needs, the Welcome Fund launches its first round of request for proposals (RFP), which will commit at least $3 million dollars to support innovative community-based work that broadens community participation in resettlement.
