Through the Refugee Act of 1980, Congress authorized cash and medical assistance up to 36 months, yet by fiscal year (FY) 1992, mainly due to insufficient appropriations, ORR had SUMMARY: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases; Notice of Closed Meeting jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 the discussions could disclose confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable material, and personal information concerning individuals associated with the grant applications, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reduced the RCA and RMA eligibility periods to 8 months. For 30 years, ORR has not increased the RCA or RMA eligibility period. Extending the RCA and RMA eligibility period will lead to more effective resettlement, by providing refugee and other ORReligible populations with additional time to become self-sufficient. DATES: The changes described in this Federal Register notice are effective as of the date of publication. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Colleen Mahar-Piersma, Refugee Policy Unit, Division of Policy and Procedures, Office of the Director, Office of Refugee Resettlement, Administration for Children and Families, by phone at (202) 260–5493, and email at refugeepolicy@acf.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 1980 Refugee Act (8 U.S.C. 1522(e)(1)) authorized the Director of ORR (hereinafter ‘‘the Director’’) to provide RCA and RMA during the first 36 months after a refugee’s arrival in the United States or, for other ORR-eligible populations, after they became eligible for ORR benefits and services. (ORReligible populations, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘refugees,’’ are outlined within ORR Policy Letter (PL) 16–01, Documentation Requirements for the Refugee Resettlement Program and ORR PL 22–02, Additional ORR-Eligible Statuses and Categories and Acceptable Documentation Requirements for Afghan Nationals.) ORR regulations (45 CFR 400.211(a)) authorize the Director to determine the time-eligibility period for RCA and RMA each year based on the appropriated funds available for the fiscal year. After Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980, ORR provided refugees with RCA and RMA for the first 36 months after a refugee’s arrival. However, due to reduced appropriations, ORR had to decrease this assistance from 36 months to 18 months, then to 12 months, and finally, in FY 1992, to 8 months. The proposed expansion of the RCA and RMA eligibility period would positively impact refugees who are not eligible for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or Medicaid. Increasing the RCA and RMA eligibility period enables refugees to address any medical and mental health issues that would impede their ability to become selfsufficient. Additionally, an expanded eligibility period allows refugees to focus on the Congressional priorities for assistance, as outlined in the Refugee Act, of acquiring English, receiving employment training, and securing employment, with the increase in E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1
