Green Bay, Appleton groups getting federal money to help refugees settle

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Six Wisconsin communities will get federal money to help new refugees settle in.

Barron, Oshkosh, Appleton, Green Bay, Madison, and Milwaukee will share one-and-a-half million dollars in re-settlement funds administered by the state Department of Children-and-Families.

Officials say the refugees are from Nepal, East Africa, and Burma – as well as from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Local agencies use the money to provide numerous services to refugees.

They include help with enrolling in school, taking language and literacy classes, getting jobs, and obtaining mental health services.

The refugee status is given to people who fear persecution back home, and are not safely able to return to their home countries.

According to a release from teh state Department of Children and Families, Wisconsin expects to receive approximately 1,000 refugees from overseas during 2013 for resettlement primarily in four areas of Wisconsin: the greater Milwaukee area, the Fox Valley, Dane County, and Sheboygan County.
