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.
