MetrosourceSeptember 17, 2021

Nearly 500 Afghan refugees may soon call the Sunflower State home.

This according to federal officials, who released data on Wednesday listing how many refugees from the war-torn nation would be allocated to each of the 50 states.

Each refugee reportedly will receive more than 12-hundred dollars for immediate living expenses.

Federal officials say refugees age 12 and up will go through a health screening and be vaccinated against COVID-19.
