HHS/ACF RIN: 0970-AC94 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Federal Licensing of Office of Refugee Resettlement Facilities 

This rule would provide the regulatory framework for critical components of new Federal licensing of shelter care providers for unaccompanied children. This framework would be used when State governments do not provide State licensing for such providers under certain circumstances. The new office created to manage child welfare procedures related to the Federal licensing will be proposed to be located within the Administration for Children and Families, but not within the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
