Proposed Projects:

Title: Refugee Assistance Program Estimates: CMA—ORR-1.

OMB No.: 0970-0030.


The Refugee Assistance Program Estimates: ORR-1 form is the application for funding for the Refugee Cash and Medical Assistance program. Applicants for funding provide estimates of costs of the different components of the program—Refugee Cash Assistance, Refugee Medical Assistance, Health Screening, Services to Unaccompanied Refugee Minors, Administrative Cost of the Services to Unaccompanied Refugee Minors program, and Administrative Costs of the State Refugee Coordinator. Applicants also submit a narrative justification for their estimates. Applicants submit the form annually on August 15 of the fiscal year prior to the fiscal year for which funds are being requested. The form may be submitted through an On-Line Data Collection system or hard copy format. The Office of Refugee Resettlement uses the cost estimate data from the ORR-1 in determining and allocating quarterly awards of funds and in projecting full year costs of this program.
