OMB No.: OMB 0970–0278. Description: The 2002 Homeland Security Act (Pub. L. 107–296) charged the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) with the care and placement of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in Federal custody. The 2002 Homeland Security Act also charged ORR with the development and implementation of a policy that permits suitable sponsors to request that ORR release these children to the sponsors while the children await immigration proceedings. Before ORR can decide whether the children may be released, the potential sponsors must meet certain conditions pursuant to Section 462 of the Homeland Security Act and the Flores v. Reno settlement agreement, No. CV85– 4544–RJK (C.D. Cal 1997). When ORR assesses the suitability of sponsors, it considers the sponsors’ ability and willingness to provide for the physical, mental and financial well-being of an unaccompanied alien child. Also, ORR considers the sponsors’ assurances that they will ensure the children’s appearance before the immigration courts. To ensure the safety of the children, sponsors must undergo a background check. In this Notice, ACF announces that it proposes to revise the Office of Refugee Resettlement Authorization for Release of Information (R–317), a currently employed information collection instrument, to improve the efficacy of its background check procedures.

    Before ORR can decide whether the children may be released, the 
potential sponsors must meet certain conditions pursuant to Section 462 
of the Homeland Security Act and the Flores v. Reno settlement

being of an unaccompanied alien child. Also, ORR considers the 
sponsors' assurances that they will ensure the children's appearance 
before the immigration courts. To ensure the safety of the children, 
sponsors must undergo a background check. In this Notice, ACF announces 
that it proposes to revise the Office of Refugee Resettlement 
Authorization for Release of Information (R-317), a currently employed 
information collection instrument, to improve the efficacy of its 
background check procedures.
    Respondents: Potential sponsors of unaccompanied alien children 
referred by the Department of Homeland Security to ORR for care and
