Minnesotans Prepare Public-Private Partnership for Afghan Resettlement

Friday, September 24, 2021

Minnesota has a long tradition of welcoming people seeking safety. Over the coming months, the state could resettle over 1,000 Afghan people, if the resources come together. A resettlement of this size and scope will be a historic effort in Minnesota. The Afghan resettlement will require a public-private partnership with millions of dollars of investments from federal, state, in-kind, individual and philanthropic sources.

View the slide deck and video, linked below, to learn about the ways that Minnesota is preparing to welcome Afghan people to Minnesota, including the possibility for philanthropy to support immediate needs upon arrival including temporary hotel stays, community resource coordination and legal services. These materials were presented to MCF's members during a Member Briefing on September 23, 2021.
