Federal funds are provided to national voluntary refugee resettlement agencies such
as Catholic Charities or the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, which provide services
(including food, clothing and shelter) related to initial resettlement of new refugees.
Assistance involving these funds will usually be received during the first 30 days
after the refugee arrives in this country.
Refugee reception and placement grants are provided by the Department of State. Refugee
matching grants are provided by the Department of Health and Human Services.
