The Office of Refugee Resettlement/Division of Unaccompanied Children Operations (ORR/DUCO), within the Administration for Children and Families, seeks to provide temporary shelter care and other child welfare-related services to unaccompanied children (UC) in ORR custody.
Residential care services begin once ORR accepts a UC for placement and end when the minor is released from ORR custody, turns 18 years of age, or the minor’s immigration case results in a final disposition of removal from the United States. Residential care and other child welfare-related services are provided by state-licensed residential care programs in the least restrictive setting appropriate for the UC’s age and special needs.
ORR is announcing the availability of funds under this Standing Notice of Funding Opportunity (SNOFO) to seek secure residential care providers. A secure care provider facility is the most restrictive placement option for UC who pose a danger to self or others or has been charged with a criminal offense. Residential care providers operating a secure program must be licensed as a juvenile detention center to provide residential care services for UC who require a heightened level of care and supervision.
