  • News: DHHS Announces Changes To Grant Determination Formula For Office Of Refugee Resettlement

    [Federal Register Volume 77, Number 164 (Thursday, August 23, 2012)]
    [Notices]
    [Page 51033]
    From the Federal Register Online via the Government Printing Office [www.gpo.gov]
    [FR Doc No: 2012-20798]

    DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

    Office of Refugee Resettlement

    [C.F.D.A. Numbers: 93.566 and 93.584]


    Notice of Change in Notification of Refugee Social Services and
    Targeted Assistance Formula Grant Allocations

    AGENCY: Office of Refugee Resettlement, ACF, HHS.

    ACTION: Notification of change.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY: The Office of Refugee Resettlement, Administration for
    Children and Families (ACF), is changing the notification to States and
    Wilson/Fish Alternative Project grantees of final Social Services and
    Targeted Assistance formula grant awards. Under these two programs,
    formula grants are allotted to States based on the eligible population
    in each State. States and Wilson/Fish Alternative Project grantees use
    the grant awards to provide employment and other resettlement services
    to refugees, Amerasians, asylees, Cuban and Haitian entrants, victims
    of trafficking, and Iraqis and Afghans with Special Immigrant Visas.
    Sections 412(c)(1)(B) and 412(c)(2)(A) of the Immigration and
    Nationality Act do not require applications for the Social Services and
    Targeted Assistance formula grant programs. ORR has the discretion to
    alter the process by which States and Wilson/Fish Alternative Project
    grantees are notified of their annual allocations. Therefore, in an
    effort to streamline the process, an annual Funding Opportunity
    Announcement (FOA) will no longer be published. Instead, in addition to
    annual publication of a notice in the Federal Register, ORR will now
    also post tables of the allocations and the population figures used to
    calculate the award amount on the ORR Web site. In addition, official
    notification of awards will be provided to States and Wilson/Fish
    Alternative Project grantees by ACF's Division of Mandatory Grants.

    DATES: This change is effective immediately.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Henley Portner, Office of the
    Director, Office of Refugee Resettlement, (202) 401-5363,
    Henley.Portner@acf.hhs.gov.

    Statutory Authority: Sections 412(c)(1)(B) and 412(c)(2)(A) of
    the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1522(c)(1)(B)
    and (c)(2)(A)).

    Director, Office of Refugee Resettlement.
