Description: The Office of Refugee Resettlement/Division of Unaccompanied Children Operations (ORR/DUCO), within the Administration for Children and Families, provides temporary shelter care and other child welfare-related services to Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) in ORR custody. Residential care services begin once ORR accepts a UAC for placement and ends 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 UAC’s age and special needs. ORR is announcing this FOA to seek secure care providers. Residential care providers, operating a secure facility, are required to be licensed in the State in which it is located to provide secure care. The secure care provider manages a specialized population of UAC who have exhibited the following behaviors: violent or criminal behavior that endangers others; serious escape history/risk; extremely disruptive/dangerous behavior in a shelter; and/or disruptive/dangerous behavior in a staff-secure setting. All entities, funded under this FOA, must also comply with the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Perez-Olano Settlement Agreement, Case No. CV05-3604 (C.D. Cal., Dec. 14, 2010), pertinent regulations, laws, and ORR policies, instructions, and procedures. ORR encourages applicants to review ORR's policies, instructions, and procedures at: as these will be critical to the overall program design.
