ORR provides 28 States and ten Wilson-Fish agencies with Refugee School Impact funding to undertake a comprehensive statewide approach supporting local school systems that are impacted by significant numbers of newly arrived refugee children. As currently awarded, the FY14-16 Refugee School Impact funding period concludes on August 14, 2016. Beginning in FFY17, ORR will award Refugee School Impact funding as a formula set-aside within the Refugee Social Services funding awarded to all States and Wilson-Fish programs coordinating refugee resettlement. This change in timing for Refugee School Impact funding will create a gap in Refugee School Impact program services between August 15, 2016 and October 1, 2016. The low-cost extensions will support refugee access to services critical to refugee student success at the beginning of the school year, when such services are greatest and most urgent.


Low-cost extension supplement grants will support activities from August 15, 2016, through September 30, 2016.
