In FY 2007, ORR awarded a competitive service grant for the Microenterprise Development Program grant to New York Association for New Americans, Inc. (NYANA) in New York, New York. The original project was from September 29, 2007, through September 30, 2012. NYANA served as the fiscal sponsor and legal entity of the approved project. As of February 1, 2009, NYANA has ceased operations of the Microenterprise Development Program. NYANA has requested ORR permission for the Center for Community Development for New Americans (CCDNA) to assume the grant. CCDNA has agreed to this request. The effect of this deviation request is to transfer the grant from the initial grantee to a new grantee with all the responsibilities of managing and implementing the project for the remainder of the grant period.
