ACTION: Award Announcement. AGENCY: CFDA#: The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number for this program is 93.576. The title is the Refugee Family Enrichment Program. Amount of Award: $200,000. SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that a noncompetitive single source program expansion supplement to an ongoing PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51357 competitive award is being made to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) to provide additional training and technical assistance to organizations implementing Refugee Marriage Enrichment projects. The application is not within the scope of any existing or expected to be issued program announcement for the Fiscal Year 2006. This application is expected to address issues critical to the development and implementation of marriage education programs for refugees by providing valuable on-site training and technical assistance to grantees and sub-grantees that offer marital communication training to refugee couples. In September of 2003, ORR awarded HIAS a grant of $200,000 to develop a Refugee Family Enrichment program which included technical assistance to subgrantees. Because of their success in the development of their marriage enrichment program, in 2004 HIAS was awarded a noncompetitive single source program expansion supplement to an ongoing competitive award to expand its Technical Assistance Services Program to Refugee Family Enrichment project sites specified by ORR. HIAS has since provided over 600 hours of technical assistance to project sites operated by organizations across the country. Their technical assistance primarily supports the work of small Mutual Assistance Associations, and without it, these agencies might struggle to provide refugee clients with the programming they need in order to achieve self sufficiency. The proposed project period is September 30, 2005— September 29, 2006. Technical assistance to support grantees in developing better approaches to the delivery of services provided to refugees is authorized by section 412(c)(1)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1522(c)(1)). ACF received one nonsubstantive comment from a private citizen which did not impact this grant project specifically.
