    Nov. 9, 2020

    ORR is requesting a 3-year extension of the ACF form ORR-0135 State Plan for Grants to States for Refugee Resettlement and has proposed changes to the form. Among the changes proposed include streamlining/formatting changes to multiple sections of the form including technical corrections to regulatory citations and removing a number of requirements related to the now obsolete Wilson-Fish Alternative Program (superseded by the Wilson-Fish TANF Coordination Program, which will have its own separate reporting requirements); adding a number of requirements related to Replacement Designees (RDs) to ensure that they are administering the Refugee Resettlement Program with transparency and equity; requesting additional information related to the Refugee Support Services (RSS) program; and improving the URM section to correct inefficiencies, eliminate unnecessary items, and address the needs of victims of trafficking and Special Immigrant Juveniles now eligible for the URM program. The form was set to expire on 3/31/2021. The comment period is open for 60 days. [ID #1161]
