Minnesotans Support Public-Private Partnership for Afghan Resettlement

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Updated December 20, 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. Learn about the ways that Minnesota is welcoming Afghan people to Minnesota, including the role for philanthropy to support immediate needs upon arrival by funding temporary hotel stays, community resource coordination and legal services.
