SUBJECT: Proposed Notice: FY 2006 Formula Social Services Program Allocations
The Fiscal Year 2006 Proposed Notice for the formula Social Services Program allocations is currently available on the ACF website. Once you access the site, go to the second column, fifth topic - Grant Opportunities. Go to the bottom of the page for: Mandatory/Formula Funding Announcements.
The FY 2006 proposed notice includes proposed social services allocations for 50 States. The FY 2006 social services allocations by State are listed in the proposed notice in Table 1.
Comments on the proposed notice must be received by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in writing by Monday, July 17, 2006. Please address written comments to Kathy Do, Division of Budget, Policy and Data Analysis (DBPDA), ORR, 8th Floor, West, 370 L'Enfant Promenade, S.W. Washington, D.C. 20447; or by email to: Kdo@acf.hhs.gov. The final notice will include a comments and response section for the formula social services grants.
Data received from States by the due date of April 17, 2006 on the number of asylees and entrants served will be matched against ORR arrivals database, Refugee Arrivals Data System (RADS). Due to the receipt of State data for matching in April, the results of these matches will be reflected in the final notice. As a result of this process, ORR may make adjustments in the final notice for FY 2006 allocations for social services funds.
Questions regarding this proposed notice should be directed to Kathy Do at (202) 401-4579.
