The United States Refugee Resettlement Program is a collaborative effort between the Department of Homeland Security: US Citizenship and Immigration Services; the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM); and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

The office of the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR) coordinates international action addressing refugee problems. UNHCR offers protection to displaced people by providing emergency supplies and access to other services. Finding a durable solution for refugees is an important part of the work of UNHCR; the three durable solutions for refugees are voluntary repatriation when it is safe, local integration, and resettlement to a third country.
