Standing Announcement for Residential (Staff Secure) Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children: The Office of Refugee Resettlement, Division of Children's Services (ORR/DCS), within the Administration for Children and Families, provides temporary shelter care and other child welfare-related services to Unaccompanied Children (UC) in ORR custody. Residential care services begin once ORR accepts a UC for placement and ends when the minor is released from ORR custody, turns 18 years of age, or the minor’s immigration case results in a final disposition of removal from the United States. Residential care and other child welfare-related services are provided by State-licensed residential care programs in the least restrictive setting appropriate for the UC’s age and needs.
ORR is announcing this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to seek Staff Secure care providers. Residential care providers, operating a staff secure facility, must be licensed by an appropriate State agency to provide residential care, to include a heightened level of supervision, for children with delinquent behaviors, including gang involvement, serious behavioral problems, and/or who present a low to moderate flight risk.
All entities, funded under this FOA, must also comply with the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Perez-Olano Settlement Agreement, Case No. CV05-3604 (C.D. Cal., Dec. 14, 2010), pertinent regulations, laws, and ORR policies, instructions, and procedures. ORR encourages applicants to review ORR's policies, instructions, and procedures http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/orr/resource/children-entering-the-united-states-unaccompanied as these will be critical to the overall program design.
