The following supplement grants will support the immediate need for additional capacity of shelter services to accommodate the increasing number of UACs referred by DHS into ORR care. The increase in the UAC population necessitates the need for expansion of services to expedite the release of UAC. In order to be prepared for an increase in referrals for shelter and post release/home studies services, ORR will solicit proposals from forty three grantees to accommodate the extensive amount of referrals from DHS.

ORR has specific requirements for the provision of services. Award recipients must have the infrastructure, licensing, experience, and appropriate level of trained staff to meet those requirements. The expansion of the existing shelter services and post-release/home studies programs through this supplemental award is a key strategy for ORR to be prepared to meet its responsibility of safe and timely release of Unaccompanied Alien Children referred to its care by DHS and to provide services for vulnerable youth post release. This will allow the US Border Patrol to continue its vital national security mission to prevent illegal migration, trafficking, and protect the borders of the United States.
Statutory Authority: This program is authorized by—
(A) Section 462 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which in March 2003, transferred responsibility for the care and custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children from the Commissioner of the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to the Director of ORR of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
(B) The Flores Settlement Agreement, Case No. CV85-4544RJK (C.D. Cal. 1996), as well as the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-457), which authorizes post release services under certain conditions to eligible children. All programs must comply with the Flores Settlement Agreement, Case No. CV85-4544-RJK (C.D. Cal. 1996), pertinent regulations and ORR policies and procedures.
