ORR is also governed by the provisions established by the Flores Agreement in 1997 and the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008. The ORR Unaccompanied Children’s Program provides placement, care, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Sep 04, 2015 Jkt 235001 custody and services for UC until they can be successfully released to a sponsor, are repatriated to their home country, or able to obtain legal status. Through cooperative agreements and contracts, ORR funds residential care providers that provide temporary housing and other services to unaccompanied children in ORR custody. These care provider facilities are State licensed and must meet ORR requirements to ensure a high level quality of care. They provide a continuum of care for children, including placements in ORR foster care, group homes, shelter, staff secure, secure, and residential treatment centers. The care providers provide children with classroom education, health care, socialization/recreation, vocational training, mental health services, access to legal services, and case management. Under the law, ORR and its care providers are required to: (1) Collect information about each UC who is entrusted to the care of ORR in order to determine the most appropriate and least restrictive placement, provide adequate services, and identify qualified sponsors for the timely release of the child or youth. ORR has developed instruments to assess the child or youth and his or her needs and conditions throughout his or her stay with ORR as well as the identification and assessment of potential sponsors. These instruments allow for consistency and compliance of standards across care providers and help ORR monitor programs and identify problems and issues that need corrective action. (2) Keep up-to-date records to ensure the child or youth’s safety and security and care and to provide accountability with all Federal and State, licensing, and other standards by care providers. (3) Notify UC of their rights and responsibilities under the law, including notice about ORR services, the fact that that they have the right to apply for Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) status, and their legal responsibility to attend an immigration hearing. These tasks are mainly conducted through the ORR online database (The UC Portal), which provides a central location for case records and the documentation of other activities (for example, when a child or youth is transferred to another facility). Many of these records are ‘‘auto-populated’’ on the UC Portal once the original data points are completed (such as DOB, A number, date of initial placement). The data collection described here pertains to activities involving UC and care providers from initial intakes of UC into ORR care to his or her release from PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53805 ORR care. It does not cover information collection for potential sponsors (Submitted via separate OMB request in January 2015.) ORR has applied the following assumptions to this request: (1) Items related to tasks that are routine and customary for care providers and others are excluded. This includes quarterly or annual financial or other reports, grant related requests from ORR Project Officers or others for monitoring performance and progress, and third party notifications to other government agencies, such as U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). (For financial and other reports, Care Providers use templates posted on http://www.acf.hhs.gov/grants/grants_ resources.html#reporting) (2) Data collection and reporting requirements do not reflect those required by State or local licensing or accreditation requirements. (3) Acknowledgement of receipt of information or other acknowledgements via signature by either the UC or the care provider or others are not included in this information request as these are administrative in nature in order to help care providers and UC track personal belongings, DHS related documents, medical records, and other important items required by the UC following release from ORR care. The components of this information request include: (1) UC Portal Capacity Report: Care providers complete the sections on ‘‘In Care’’ and ‘‘Beds in Reserve’’ as well as the section recording the UC who have been discharged on a daily basis so that ORR Intakes has a complete picture of available beds for UC placements. (2) The Further Assessment Swift Track (FAST) Placement Tool (Versions for Secure and Staff Secure placements): Initially used by ORR Intakes to determine when a UC warrants a placement in Secure or Staff Secure Care. Care providers must use the tool to update a status for UC who are placed in Secure Care at least every 30 days. (Care providers are not required to reuse tool for UC who have been placed in Staff Secure Care). (3) Placement Authorization: Autogenerated. Requires a signature from the care provider acknowledging a particular UC placement into their facility. (4) Notice of Placement in Secure or Staff Secure Facility: Acknowledges UC’s placement in a secure or staff secure care provider facility with signature of UC and facility witness. (5) Initial Intakes Assessment: Biographical information is auto- E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1
