Information About Refugee Communities Now Available on IDAresources.org
Historically, IDA programs that work with refugees have shown strong demand, sustained savings behaviors, and high rates of asset purchase completions. The AFI Resources Center is putting together trainings and technical assistance for AFI grantees seeking to recruit and enroll refugee participants.
If your organization is interested in serving refugee communities in your area, we encourage you to visit the Refugee Communities section of our IDAresources.org website. In this section, you will find information on training and technical assistance on this topic available from the AFI Resource Center.
Among the information presented on this new section of the website is an article, 10 Strategies that Work for Reaching Cultural Markets with IDAs. The article highlights tips on outreach, program administration, and program design.
