OMB No.: 0970–NEW (two of the forms have prior OMB No: [SSA–3955 & SSA–2061]). Description: The United States (U.S.) Repatriation Program was established by Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act (Assistance for U.S. Citizens Returned from Foreign Countries) to provide temporary assistance to U.S. citizens and their dependents who have been identified by the Department of State (DOS) as having returned, or been brought from a foreign country to the U.S. because of destitution, illness, war, threat of war, or a similar crisis, and are without available resources immediately accessible to meet their needs. The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was provided with the authority to administer this Program. On or about 1994, this authority was delegated by the HHS Secretary to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and later re-delegated by ACF to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Repatriation Program works with States, Federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations to provide eligible individuals with temporary assistance for up to 90-days. This assistance is in the form of a loan and must be repaid to the Federal Government. The Program was later expanded in response to legislation enacted by Congress to address the particular needs of persons with mental illness (24 U.S.C. Sections 321 through 329). Further refinements occurred in response to Executive Order (EO) 11490 (as amended) where HHS was given the responsibility to ‘‘develop plans and procedures for assistance at ports of entry to U.S. personnel evacuated from overseas areas, their onward movement to final destination, and follow-up assistance after arrival at final destination.’’ In addition, under EO VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Oct 16, 2015 Jkt 238001 12656 (53 CFR 47491), ‘‘Assignment of emergency preparedness responsibilities,’’ HHS was given the lead responsibility to develop plans and procedures in order to provide assistance to U.S. citizens and others evacuated from overseas areas. In order to effectively and efficiently manage these legislative authorities, the Program has been divided into two major activities, Emergencies and NonEmergencies Repatriation Activities. Operationally, these two Program activities involve different kinds of preparation, resources, and implementation. However, the core Program statute, regulations, policies and administrative procedures for these two Programs are essentially the same. The ongoing routine arrivals of individual repatriates and the repatriation of individuals with mental illness constitute the Program Nonemergency activities. Emergency Activities are characterized by contingency events such as civil unrest, war, threat of war or similar crisis, among other incidents. Depending on the type of event, number of evacuees and resources available, ACF will provide assistance utilizing two scalable mechanisms, emergency repatriations or group repatriations. Emergency repatriations assume the evacuation of 500 or more individuals, while group repatriations assume the evacuation of 50–500 individuals. The Program provides services through agreements with the States, U.S. Territories, Federal agencies, and Nongovernmental agencies. The list of Repatriation Forms is as follows: 1. The HHS Repatriation Program: Emergency and Group Processing Form: under 45 CFR 211 and 212, HHS is to make findings setting forth the pertinent facts and conclusions according to established standards to determine whether an individual is an eligible person.

An authorized federal staff from the ACF will make final eligibility determinations. 2.

    Title: U.S. Repatriation Program Forms.
    OMB No.: 0970-NEW (two of the forms have prior OMB No: [SSA-3955 & 
SSA-2061]).
    Description: The United States (U.S.) Repatriation Program was 
established by Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act 
(Assistance for U.S. Citizens Returned from Foreign Countries) to 
provide temporary assistance to U.S. citizens and their dependents who 
have been identified by the Department of State (DOS) as having 
returned, or been brought from a foreign country to the U.S. because of 
destitution, illness, war, threat of war, or a similar crisis, and are 
without available resources immediately accessible to meet their needs. 
The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was 
provided with the authority to administer this Program. On or about 
1994, this authority was delegated by the HHS Secretary to the 
Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and later re-delegated 
by ACF to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Repatriation Program 
works with States, Federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations 
to provide eligible individuals with temporary assistance for up to 90-
days. This assistance is in the form of a loan and must be repaid to 
the Federal Government.
    The Program was later expanded in response to legislation enacted 
by Congress to address the particular needs of persons with mental 
illness (24 U.S.C. Sections 321 through 329). Further refinements 
occurred in response to Executive Order (EO) 11490 (as amended) where 
HHS was given the responsibility to ``develop plans and procedures for 
assistance at ports of entry to U.S. personnel evacuated from overseas 
areas, their onward movement to final destination, and follow-up 
assistance after arrival at final destination.'' In addition, under EO 
12656 (53 CFR 47491), ``Assignment of emergency preparedness 
responsibilities,'' HHS was given the lead responsibility to develop 
plans and procedures in order to provide assistance to U.S. citizens 
and others evacuated from overseas areas.
    In order to effectively and efficiently manage these legislative 
authorities, the Program has been divided into two major activities, 
Emergencies and Non-Emergencies Repatriation Activities. Operationally, 
these two Program activities involve different kinds of preparation, 
resources, and implementation. However, the core Program statute,

illness constitute the Program Non-emergency activities. Emergency 
Activities are characterized by contingency events such as civil 
unrest, war, threat of war or similar crisis, among other incidents. 
Depending on the type of event, number of evacuees and resources 
available, ACF will provide assistance utilizing two scalable 
mechanisms, emergency repatriations or group repatriations. Emergency 
repatriations assume the evacuation of 500 or more individuals, while
