Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) commends the passage of a FY22 Continuing Resolution (CR) and resettlement benefits for Afghans.  This legislation includes $1.68 billion for Afghans arriving with humanitarian parole, $2.5 billion for unaccompanied children, an additional $2.2. billion for the State Department’s humanitarian assistance accounts, and an additional $193 million related to Operations Allies Welcome. This additional funding will provide essential benefits, including Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) assistance, reception and placement, food assistance, and additional necessary services for Afghan individuals and families.

EMM is committed to assisting arriving Afghans through a network of 11 affiliate partners across the U.S. The #NeighborsWelcome: Afghan Allies Fund has been established to raise additional funding to ensure our newest neighbors have adequate housing and the support services needed to fully integrate into their new communities.
