ACTION: Announcing the Award of Nine Single-Source Grants under the Voluntary Agencies Matching Grant Program. AGENCY: The Voluntary Agencies Matching Grant Program was created by Congress in 1979. The program is intended to work in consort with the Refugee and Cuban & Haitian Entrant Reception and Placement (R&P) programs. Thus, competition under the Voluntary Agency Matching Grant Program has historically been limited to those voluntary agencies providing R&P services through cooperative agreements with the Department of State or the Department of Homeland Security. Congress confirmed this approach to the program in the 1986 Refugee Assistance Extension Act. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has determined that using the solicited single-source application process is in the best interest of the government as it will achieve the same result and is more cost effective than the published Funding Opportunity Announcement process. SUMMARY: October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:24 Jan 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Annual Burden Estimates Number of responses per respondent 54 62 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES DATES: child support enforcement agencies to help them establish effective systems for collecting child and spousal support; (2) 42 U.S.C. 666(f), which requires states to enact the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act; and (3) 45 CFR 303.7, which requires state child support agencies to provide services in intergovernmental cases.

Telephone: 202–401–5720. Email: Thomas.Giossi@acf.hhs.gov . The Voluntary Agencies Matching Grant Program, under the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), is an alternative to public cash assistance designed to enable refugees, asylees, and other ORR eligible populations, to become selfsufficient through employment within 120 to 180 days from date of arrival into the United States (U.S.) and/or the date of eligibility for ORR services; however, clients must be enrolled within 31 days of becoming eligible to ensure that adequate services are provided and selfsufficiency is achieved and maintained within the period of eligibility. Services provided include, but are not limited to, case management, employment services, housing and utilities, food, transportation, cash allowance, health and medical, English language training, social adjustment, and other support services. In all cases, self-sufficiency must be achieved without accessing public cash assistance and all program services cease at 180 days from program eligibility. The Voluntary Agencies Matching Grant Program was designed to work directly with Reception and Placement (R&P) programs. Congress confirmed this approach to the program in the 1986 Refugee Assistance Extension Act. Therefore, funding under this program is open only to those nine voluntary agencies that already provide R&P services through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\02FEN1.SGM 02FEN1
