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.
