OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Targeted Assistance Formula Grant program, administered by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), funds employment and other resettlement services for refugees and entrants who reside in high need areas. These areas are defined as counties with unusually large refugee and entrant populations and with high refugee or entrant population concentrations in relation to the overall county population. Such counties need supplementation of other available resources in order to help refugees and entrants obtain employment as soon as possible. Targeted assistance funds must be used primarily for employability services intended to enable refugees and entrants to obtain jobs with less than one year’s participation in the program. Services funded with targeted assistance formula grants must be used to assist refugees and entrants in the following order of priority: (1) Refugees who are cash assistance recipients, particularly long-term recipients; (2) unemployed refugees and entrants who are not receiving cash assistance; and (3) employed refugees and entrants in need of services to retain employment or to attain economic independence. Targeted Assistance Formula Grants are funded under the authority of section 412(c)(2) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1522(c)(2). Eligible applicants for these grants are State governments, Wilson/Fish projects, and State Replacement Agencies. Grant amounts under this program area are determined based on a formula using population figures for the past five years. Grantees are re-qualified to participate in this program every three years based on current population figures.
