About Private Sponsorship of Refugees  

 The Department of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) launched Welcome Corps, a Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program in January 2023 as part of the Administration’s efforts to expand community sponsorship in refugee resettlement. Community Sponsorship Hub and its consortium develop and implement the infrastructure to welcome and support thousands of refugees by equipping lawful permanent residents and citizens to welcome newcomers and experience the benefits of resettlement firsthand. The program allows Americans to consistently engage in sponsorship and meaningfully enhance integration outcomes for refugees. The PSR pilot program builds on previous successes in community sponsorship programs to expand resettlement capacity in the United States and diversify welcoming communities, bringing new perspectives, and increasing opportunities to take part in resettlement.
