This tool is intended to serve two purposes: first, as a set of guidelines for resettlement agencies to use for determining which of their affiliates are best suited to accept LGBTQ+ refugees for placement; and second, as an agency self-assessment to help refugee programs identify strengths and challenges that they may face when resettling LGBTQ+ refugees. Secondary migration is relatively common for LGBT refugees. Selecting an appropriate resettlement site at the start of the process reduces costs and improves outcomes.
