TITLE OF INFORMATION COLLECTION: Survivors of Torture Program Data Points
PURPOSE: The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) currently collects demographic, programmatic, and outcome data in order to learn more about the population being served, the types of services they receive, and the effectiveness of those services. This collection of information was previously approved under this Generic Performance Progress Report (OMB #0970-0490). At this time, ORR proposes to change the form and instructions to include the collection of outcome indicators in six domains for continuing clients in the previous budget year. Initially, ORR required the collection of outcome indicators for new clients only.
A summary of the information collected will continue to be used by ORR in reports to stakeholders and funding requests.
