The UC program has seen an increase in the numbers of UC referred for placement since January 2015. FY15 was the first fiscal year, in the history of the UC program, in which there were eight (11) consecutive months of steadily increasing referrals. During FY 15, the largest total referrals occurred during August, with over 4,300 referrals, and these high referral numbers continued into the month of September with 4,172 referrals. In October and November, 2015, the DCS program has received referrals for initial placements for 10,158 unaccompanied children. ORR has experienced a steadily increasing census of UC in care, with longer average length of stay. This increase, in UC referred for placement, has increased the need for additional shelter beds. ORR has specific requirements for the provision of services. Award recipients must have the infrastructure, licensing, experience, and appropriate level of trained staff to meet the service requirements and the urgent need for expansion of services. The program’s ability to avoid a buildup of children waiting, in Border Patrol stations, for placement in shelters, can only be accommodated through the expansion of the existing program and its services through the supplemental award. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Authority: This program is authorized by— (A) Section 462 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which in March 2003, transferred responsibility for the care and custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children from the Commissioner of the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to the Director of ORR of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
