In addition to damaging infrastructure, earthquakes can damage your sense of personal safety. Following an earthquake, it is common for individuals and families in and around the affected areas to experience distress and anxiety about their personal safety as well as the safety of their family, friends, and neighbors. Earthquakes can leave children and teens feeling frightened, confused, and insecure. Addressing the behavioral health impacts of an earthquake is a key component of an individual’s and family’s recovery.
The "Supporting Behavioral Health Needs following an Earthquake" document provides general guidance for identifying behavioral health impacts to individuals after an earthquake with an emphasis on supporting the behavioral health needs of children and youth. The document also lists various behavioral health resources for readers.
The Emergency and Group Repatriation Financial Form: Expenditure Statement for Reimbursement form (RR-02) should be completed by the state designated agency and ACF authorized support agency to request reimbursement of reasonable and allowable costs incurred as a result of (1) ACF activation of the State Emergency Repatriation Plan (SERP), or (2) ACF interagency agreement, or similar mechanism, in support of an emergency or group repatriation.
The Repatriation Loan Waiver and Deferral Request Form (Form RR-03) is to be completed by individuals who have received temporary assistance through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Repatriation Program, and want to request a waiver or deferral of their repatriation loan.
The Non-Emergency Monthly Financial Statement Form will be used by the state agency and/or authorized ACF providers to report expenditures and claim reimbursement for assistance furnished to individual repatriation cases referred by ACF or its grantee in the United States (U.S.) contingent to the provisions found under the Public Law 86-571 and/or Public Law 87-64, as amended, and policies issued thereunder.
All financial, medical, transportation and other temporary assistance provided through the repatriation program must be repaid, unless a waiver is granted by an authorized HHS officer. Form RR-05 requires recipients to acknowledge privacy and repayment obligations.
Refusal of Temporary Assistance Form (Form RR-06) allows citizens to opt out of receiving temporary assistance after being provided with information about the U.S. Repatriation Program in connection with their return to the United States.
