The Women’s Refugee Commission joined 71 local, state, and national organizations to express deep concern with the Department of Homeland Security’s failure to invest crucial Shelter and Services Program (SSP) funds in a manner that is responsive to those on the front lines of the effort to welcome arriving asylum seekers. The organizations call for improved coordination, transparency, and accessibility in future SSP distributions that recognize and uplift the vital partnership between DHS and NGOs in the humane and dignified processing of arriving migrants.
