Reported on in this document is the Indochinese Refugee Assistance Program with a consideration for three current developments: (1) the forthcoming admission of an additional 15,000 Indochinese refugees in the United States; (2) possible extension of the refugee program beyond September 30, 1977; and (3) progress toward enactment by Congress of legislation leading to permanent resident status and eventual citizenship for the refugees. A brief historical review outlines the implementation and activities of this program. Aspects of the program dealt with include funding, assistance given to refugees, refugee distribution, employment/training projects, mental health projects, unaccompanied children, physicians and dentists, education, legal services, "boat case" admissions, activities of the HEW Refugee Task Force, and refugee employment.
