Our Mission: The NRC USA office has two primary functions: raising money for NRC's overseas programs that meet the needs of conflict-affected refugees and internally displaced people and providing humanitarian policy advice to the administration, Congress, and peer non-governmental organizations. NRC receives financial support from the USAID's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and the US Department of State's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.
NRC USA assists the field programs in applying for critical support. The policy and advocacy work translates the direct experiences of NRC field staff and programs into practical recommendations as to how the U.S. government and Congress can better meet the needs of the world's refugees.
NRC USA is also a resource to universities, think tanks, and the general public on refugee issues and seeks financial support and partnerships with US-based individuals, foundations, and corporations.
