Refugee Resettlement Resource Book: A Guide to Federal Programs and National Support Projects to Assist in Refugee Resettlement.
Bunch, Jesse, Ed.; And Others
This resource book is a guide to refugee assistance programs operated by the Federal government, national organizations, and State and voluntary agencies. The book is designed as a reference source on available programs, funds, and resources that can be utilized by local service providers, refugee self-help groups, local county and State human service agencies, and others involved in resettlement work. An overview summarizes the newly emerging context in which refugee resettlement programs are being established, especially as defined by the Refugee Act of 1980 which provides for services to refugees. A brief statistical analysis of the current refugee situation, data on admissions levels projected for 1981, and information on recent Cuban and Haitian refugees are presented. Succeeding sections of the resource book describe Federal, national, State, and voluntary programs and agencies concerned with refugees and domestic resettlement. Also included are the Refugee Act of 1980, a list of information sources, and directories of Congressional committees, voluntary agencies, and State offices involved in refugee affairs. (Author/MJL)
