The Office of Refugee Resettlement is seeking providers for Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children

The Office of Refugee Resettlement, Division of Unaccompanied Children's Operations (ORR/DUCO), within the Administration for Children and Families, provides temporary shelter care and other child welfare-related services to unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in ORR custody.  Residential care services begin once ORR accepts a UAC for placement and ends when the minor is released from ORR custody, turns 18 years of age, or the minor’s immigration case results in a final disposition of removal from the United States.  Residential care and other child welfare-related services are provided by State-licensed residential care programs in the least restrictive setting appropriate for the UAC’s age and needs.

ORR is announcing the following funding opportunity announcements. Applications are due June 29, 2018.
