SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Description: This new data collection will request RSS grantees and RSS Set Aside grantees to provide the agency name, city, state, phone number, and funding amount for each contracted sub-grantee. Without having this information regarding RSS sub-grantees, the ACF Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) does not know whether an agency is, or is not, receiving ORR funds. This makes it difficult to ensure communications with, provide access to targeted assistance for, and keep abreast of the activities of all ORR-funded refugee service providers.

Respondents: State governments and replacement designees.
