About ECDC: ECDC is a non-profit, community-based organization headquartered in Virginia and founded in 1983. ECDC became a national resettlement agency in 1991 and has since resettled more than 66,000 individuals in the U.S. Currently, ECDC has a network of 22 local resettlement sites that resettle refugees, Afghans and Ukrainian parolees. Of these, six are ECDC’s branch offices, while the remaining are independent affiliates. ECDC has decades of experience conducting outreach and engagement with local ethnic communities throughout the country, delivering structured training and technical assistance, cultivating supportive relationships among host communities, monitoring resettlement performance in compliance with federal government resettlement objectives and standards, and marshaling private resources to support refugee resettlement and integration.


The Preferred Communities Ukrainian Parolees Program: Currently 75,000 Ukrainian Humanitarian Parolees (UHP) are expected to arrive in the United States, in FY 2022 with an additional 25,000 expected in FY 2023 as part of the Uniting for Ukraine (U4U) initiative. As the population is not being processed through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, they will not be receiving Reception & Placement assistance through the Department of State (DOS). The office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) fills this service gap by providing funding through the Preferred Communities Program to enable organizations like ECDC provide services such as intake assessment and referral to employment and social services, intensive case management to the most vulnerable Ukrainians, and housing and other immediate needs assistance to those without any support system.
