This funding will support the expansion of shelter/foster care program bed capacity to meet the additional number of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) referrals from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other Federal agencies resulting from the recent passage of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008. Many provisions in the TVPRA will dramatically affect the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) UAC program's capacity to provide placement, custodial and residential shelter care services. ORR expects an additional 6,800 referrals annually from DHS.

Request for Public Comment Concerning Requirements for Transferring Children From the Placement and Care Responsibility of a State Title IV-E Agency to a Tribal Title IV-E Agency and Tribal Share of Title IV-E Administration and Training Expenditures
Document Number: E9-5505
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-03-13
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
Effective October 1, 2009, Public Law 110-351 provides Indian Tribes with the option to operate a foster care, adoption assistance and, at Tribal option, a kinship guardianship assistance program under title IV-E of the Social Security Act (the Act). The Federal government would share in the costs of Tribes operating an ACF-approved title IV-E program. Public Law 110-351 requires that ACF develop interim final rules after consulting with Tribes and affected States on the implementation of the Tribal plan requirements in section 479B of the Act and other amendments made by the Tribal provisions in section 301 of Public Law 110-351. The law requires that such regulations include: (1) Procedures to ensure that a transfer of State responsibility for the placement and care of a child under a State title IV-E plan to a Tribal title IV-E plan occurs in a manner that does not affect the child's eligibility for title IV-E or title XIX Medicaid and such services or payments; and, (2) the in-kind expenditures from third- party sources permitted for the Tribal share of administration and training expenditures under title IV-E. This notice is designed to provide a written opportunity for comment to all interested persons, and specifically the affected States and to notify Tribal leaders of in-person opportunities to consult with the Children's Bureau on the development of these regulations.
State Median Income Estimate for a Four-Person Family: Notice of the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2010 State Median Income Estimates for Use Under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number 93.568) Administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families, Office of Community Services, Division of Energy Assistance
Document Number: E9-5412
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-03-13
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
This notice announces to LIHEAP grantees the estimated median income of four-person families in each State and the District of Columbia for FFY 2010 (October 1, 2009, to September 30, 2010). LIHEAP grantees that choose to base their income eligibility criteria on these State median income estimates may adopt these estimates (up to 60 percent) on the estimates' date of publication in the Federal Register or on a later date as discussed below. This enables these grantees to implement this notice during the period between the heating and cooling seasons. However, by October 1, 2009, or the beginning of the grantees' fiscal years, whichever is later, these grantees must adjust their income eligibility criteria so that such criteria are in accord with the FFY 2010 State median income estimates. This listing of 60 percent of estimated State median incomes provides one of the maximum income criteria that LIHEAP grantees may use in determining a household's income eligibility for LIHEAP.

In FY 2006, ORR awarded a competitive Services for Survivors of Torture grant to the Tides Center/Utah Health and Human Rights Project in Salt Lake City, Utah. The original project period was from September 30, 2006 through September 29, 2009. The Tides Center served as fiscal sponsor and legal entity of the approved project. The Tides Center provides essential financial, human resources, and administrative services to philanthropic projects such as the Utah Health and Human Rights Project (UHHRP) while enabling them to become independent agencies. UHHRP has now completed the process of becoming an independent agency and is formally separating from the Tides Center on January 31, 2009. The Tides Center has requested permission for UHHRP to assume the grant. UHHRP has agreed to this request and will continue to function with the scope and operations of the grant remaining unchanged.

The Department is considering a temporary 60-day delay in effective date to allow Department officials the opportunity for further review and consideration of new regulations, consistent with the Chief of Staff's memorandum of January 20, 2009. The Department solicits comments specifically on the contemplated delay in effective date.
