Refugee Population
I believe we should be researching how Refugee Population enter into communities and how they then transition into permanent housing with access to employment, healthcare, and other services. How many have difficulty in the transition, how many wind up homeless or in need of additional subsidies. Each year organizations bring thousands of refugees to the US and they settle in communities everywhere. Some communities are ill equipped to handle diverse populations and other thrive and are accepting an open. This has implications in health, education, housing and other social services. We need to ensure we have a system in place that makes the transition of new residents more straightforward.
Thank you for sharing your suggestion with HUD as part of our Research Roadmap idea gathering process. Your recommendation has been noted and will be among the ideas considered for the Departments near- and long-term research agenda.
