Office of Refugee Resettlement; Grant to Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society

Notice is hereby given that a noncompetitive single source program expansion supplement to an ongoing competitive award is being made to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) to provide additional training and technical assistance to organizations implementing Refugee Marriage Enrichment projects. The application is not within the scope of any existing or expected to be issued program announcement for the Fiscal Year 2006. This application is expected to address issues critical to the development and implementation of marriage education programs for refugees by providing valuable on-site training and technical assistance to grantees and sub-grantees that offer marital communication training to refugee couples. In September of 2003, ORR awarded HIAS a grant of $200,000 to develop a Refugee Family Enrichment program which included technical assistance to subgrantees. Because of their success in the development of their marriage enrichment program, in 2004 HIAS was awarded a noncompetitive single source program expansion supplement to an ongoing competitive award to expand its Technical Assistance Services Program to Refugee Family Enrichment project sites specified by ORR. HIAS has since provided over 600 hours of technical assistance to project sites operated by organizations across the country. Their technical assistance primarily supports the work of small Mutual Assistance Associations, and without it, these agencies might struggle to provide refugee clients with the programming they need in order to achieve self sufficiency. The proposed project period is September 30, 2005 September 29, 2006. Technical assistance to support grantees in developing better approaches to the delivery of services provided to refugees is authorized by section 412(c)(1)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1522(c)(1)). ACF received one non-substantive comment from a private citizen which did not impact this grant project specifically.

The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) herein announces an urgent grant award to the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, Red Lake, Minnesota, in the amount of $311,400 for a project period of 24 months. This urgent grant award will assist the Tribe in mitigating the effects of the tragic events of the school shooting in March 2005 that resulted in the death of students, faculty and staff. The shooting marked the highest death toll in U.S. school shootings since the Columbine High School massacre in April 1999. Due to the devastation created by the high school shooting, ANA is providing urgent financial assistance for minor renovations to the local community centers to support positive community development; funding to hire eleven volunteers to assist youth and members of the community in coping with this event; and building support systems, which will aid in preventing future tragedies.
