Connecting with an Afghan Placement and Assistance Program Resettlement Agency
Afghans granted humanitarian parole who independently depart from a Safe Haven (military base) may wish to access the Afghan Placement and Assistance (APA) Program. To do so, individuals must approach a local APA agency within 90 days of departure from the Safe Haven to request assistance. Afghan parolees may still be eligible for other benefits and programs even without participating in the APA Program.
• The directory of local APA agencies in each state is linked below. The United States is a large country with many diverse and welcoming cities that have affordable and safe housing, employment opportunities, and strong resettlement services and support.
• Due to recent high number of arrivals and little to no housing availability in some locations such as Sacramento and Northern Virginia, services may be limited or delayed in these locations.
