Operation Allies Welcome

Operation Allies Welcome

NAA has been asked by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to partner in a program announced August 29, Operation Allies Welcome, to help 70,000 Afghan refugees with immediate housing needs. These families, many of whom supported our country’s efforts in Afghanistan during the past 20 years, are seeking to safely resettle in these United States. These refugees have undergone extensive security checks, been tested for COVID-19 and received all standard U.S. vaccinations including those that are age appropriate and COVID-19 vaccines. The federal government is working through several prominent national non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to resettle these families and help them obtain housing, jobs, school admission and cover basic needs. There are 25 markets targeted for resettlement. If you can help at all, please contact NAA SVP of Government Affairs Greg Brown
