OMB No.: 0970–0030. Description: The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) reimburses, to the extent of available appropriations, certain non-Federal costs for the provision of cash and medical assistance to refugees, along with allowable expenses in the administration of the Refugee Resettlement Program. ORR needs sound State estimates of likely PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 expenditures for refugee cash, medical, and administration (CMA) expenditures so that it can anticipate Federal costs in upcoming quarters. If Federal costs are anticipated to exceed budget allocations, ORR must take steps to reduce Federal expenses, such as limiting the number of months of eligibility for Refugee Cash Assistance and Refugee Medical Assistance. To meet the need for reliable State estimates of anticipated expenses, ORR has developed a single-page form in which State estimate the average number of recipients for each category of assistance, the average unit cost over the next 12 months, and the expense for the overall administration of the program. This form, the ORR–1, must be submitted prior to the beginning of each Federal fiscal year. Without this information, ORR would be out of compliance with the intent of its legislation and otherwise unable to estimate program costs adequately. In addition, the ORR–1 serves as the State’s application for reimbursement of its CMA expenses. Submission of this form is thus required by section 412(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which provides that ‘‘no grant or contract may be awarded under this section unless an appropriate proposal and application * * * are E:\FR\FM\24JYN1.SGM 24JYN1
