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.

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.

The TANF Tribal Plan is a mandatory statement submitted to the Secretary by the Indian Tribe, which consists of an outline of how the Indian Tribe’s TANF program will be administered and operated. It is used by the Secretary to determine whether the plan is approvable and to determine that the Indian Tribe is eligible to receive a TANF assistance grant. It is also made available to the public. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing to revise the guidance by adding a certification page and is requesting additional details regarding economic development. ACF expects the additional information to add an estimated eight burden hours to each Indian Tribe’s submission. This is reflected in the annual burden estimates shown below.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Refugee Resettlement Program Estimates: CMA, ORR-1.
    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 
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
