    ORR provides 28 States and ten Wilson-Fish agencies with Refugee 
School Impact funding to undertake a comprehensive statewide approach 
supporting local school systems that are impacted by significant 
numbers of newly arrived refugee children. As currently awarded, the 
FY14-16 Refugee School Impact funding period concludes on August 14, 
2016. Beginning in FFY17, ORR will award Refugee School Impact funding 
as a formula set-aside within the Refugee Social Services funding 
awarded to all States and Wilson-Fish programs coordinating refugee 
resettlement. This change in timing for Refugee School Impact funding 
will create a gap in Refugee School Impact program services between 
August 15, 2016 and October 1, 2016. The low-cost extensions will 
support refugee access to services critical to refugee student success 
at the beginning of the school year, when such services are greatest 
and most urgent.

DATES: Low-cost extension supplement grants will support activities 
from August 15, 2016, through September 30, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carl Rubenstein, Director, Division of 
Refugee Assistance, Office of Refugee Resettlement, 330 C Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20201. Email: carl.rubenstein@acf.hhs.gov.

    Statutory Authority: This program is authorized by Section 
412(c)(1)(A)(iii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 
U.S.C. 1522(c)(1)(A)(iii).
