Document Number: E6-11578
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-07-21
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
Notice is hereby given that the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Division of Community Resettlement, will award supplemental funds without competition to Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS). This supplement is being awarded for a project that will deliver comprehensive services to meet the housing, employment and case management needs of the Somali Bantu. The arrival of more than 200 Somali Bantu refugee secondary migrants into Columbus, Ohio, has severely impacted CRIS' ability to provide employment and other services as well as the capacity of the local homeless shelter system in the community. This supplement will provide assistance with the needs of these refugees to ensure that they have adequate housing and other services to assist in their successful resettlement into this community. The grantee, Community Refugee and Immigration Services, is the Ohio affiliate of Church World Service and is engaged in the primary resettlement of newly arriving refugees in Franklin County. These supplemental funds will support 3 months of assistance at a cost of $116,133 in Federal support.

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) herein announces a Program Expansion Supplement to the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, Red Lake, Minnesota. This supplement for $136,400 will extend funding for 11 youth volunteers through the second year of the project. In FY 2005, ANA provided an urgent grant award to the Tribe to assist 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 11 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.

Document Number: 06-5193
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-07
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
On November 7, 2005, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) published a notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment regarding its proposal to replace the six data measures used as part of the assessment of State performance on the Federal Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) with six data composites (70 FR 67479). Based on the results of our data analyses and a review of comments from the field, ACF made the following decisions: The CFSR will use a State's performance on two individual data measures as part of the assessment of the State's substantial conformity with CFSR Safety Outcome 1Children are, first and foremost, protected from abuse and neglect. A national standard is established for each of these measures. The CFSR will use a State's performance on four data composites as part of the assessment of the State's substantial conformity with CFSR Permanency Outcome 1Children have permanency and stability in their living situations. A national standard is established for each of these data composites. This announcement presents the following information: The decisions made by the Children's Bureau regarding use of data composites for the Federal Child and Family Services Review (CFSR); The composites and additional data that will be used as part of the assessment of a State's substantial conformity with the CFSR requirements; and Descriptive statistics relevant to each composite and measure, including the score that will serve as the national standard for the second round of the CFSR. Where relevant, the announcement addresses key comments from the field in response to the Federal Register notice. The announcement also includes the following attachments: Attachment A: Data to be included in the CFSR State Data Profile. Attachment B: Methodology for Composite Construction.

Head Start Program
Document Number: E6-8222
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-05-30
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
This notice of proposed rulemaking authorizes approval of annual waivers, under certain circumstances, from two provisions in the current Head Start transportation regulation (45 CFR part 1310): The requirement that each child be seated in a child restraint system while the vehicle is in motion, and the requirement that each bus have at least one bus monitor on board at all times. Waivers would be granted when the Head Start or Early Head Start grantee demonstrates that compliance with the requirement(s) for which the waiver is being sought will result in a significant disruption to the Head Start program or the Early Head Start program and that waiving the requirement(s) is in the best interest of the children involved. The proposed rules also would revise the definition of child restraint system in the regulation. The proposed change in the definition would remove the reference to weight which now conflicts with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The regulation also is being amended to reflect new effective dates for Sec. Sec. 1310.12(a) and 1310.22(a) on the required use of school buses or allowable alternate vehicles and the required availability of such vehicles adapted for use of children with disabilities, as the result of enactment of Section 224 of Public Law 109-149.

Document Number: E6-6784
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-05-05
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
On February 9, 2005, the Office of Community Services (OCS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published an announcement seeking applications for the Assets for Independence Demonstration Program. This program provides grant support for Individual Development Account (IDA) projects administered by government agencies and non-profit organizations. This Notice amends the final Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 application due date. This Notice announces a change in the final FY 2006 application due date from June 15, 2006 to July 18, 2006. This Notice also announces two conference call series. The first series will provide an overview of the Assets for Independence Demonstration Program, including application procedures and requirements. The second series will provide an orientation to administering effective Individual Development Account (IDA) projects with support from the Assets for Independence Demonstration Program. The Program Announcement for the Assets for Independence Demonstration Program is a standing announcement. It is effective until canceled or changed by the Office of Community Services (OCS). Applicants may submit applications at any time throughout the year. (Any changes to application due dates in successive years will be announced through publication of a Notice in the Federal Register, on the ACF Grant Opportunities Web page at http://www.acf. hhs.gov/grants/ index.html, and on http://www.Grants.gov.) OCS will review and make funding decisions about applications in three separate funding cycles annually. For FY 2006, the due dates are: November 1, 2005; March 15, 2006; and July 18, 2006. For example, starting in mid-March, OCS reviews all applications submitted November 2 through March 15. Starting in mid- July, OCS reviews all applications submitted March 16 through July 18. And, starting in early November, OCS reviews all applications submitted July 19 through November 1. Unsuccessful applicants may submit a new application in any succeeding application period. (1) Under the Executive Summary section of the original Program Announcement, please delete the following: The Administration for Children and Families, Office of Community Services (OCS) will accept applications for financial assistance to establish and administer Assets for Independence (AFI) Projects.

Grantees must participate in an on going national evaluation of the impact of AFI Projects and IDAs. This is a standing announcement. It is effective until canceled or changed by the Office of Community Services. Applicants may submit applications at any time throughout the year. OCS will review and make funding decisions about applicants submitted by any of three due dates: March 15, June 15 and November 1. (If a date falls on a weekend, the due date will be the following Monday.) For example, starting in mid- March annually, OCS will review all applications submitted November 2 through March 15. Starting in early June, OCS will review all applications submitted March 16 through June 15. And, starting in early November, OCS will review all applications submitted June 16 through November 1. Unsuccessful applicants may submit a new application in any succeeding application period.
