Program Description
ISED is a non-profit based in Washington, DC which provides and immigrant services, economic, microenterprise and asset development, organizational capacity building, performance measurement and management information systems, program evaluation, and public policy analysis. We conduct national and regional training events, disseminate best practices and lessons learned and help programs develop performance indicators and systems to capture and report outcomes.

Within agriculture, ISED focuses on how to maximize opportunities for Refugees in the agricultural sector through the establishment of the Refugee Rural Initiative (RRI). The initiative funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, ISED provides grants and one on one technical assistance to assist partners to facilitate collaborations and partnerships between the local refugee service providers and USDA agencies, help agencies retool or redesign their microenterprise programs for a better fit with the needs of food sector entrepreneurs particularly with a focus on access to finance and to markets, and compiles comprehensive data on refugees involved in agriculture.
