Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program posted 2/14/2018
Summary: The goal of the YHDP is to support up to 11 communities, at least 5 of which will be rural, in the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness, and sharing that experience with and mobilizing communities around the country toward the same end. The population to be served by this demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth, where no member of the household is older than 24. The demonstration has five primary objectives: 1) build national momentum; 2) evaluate the coordinated community approach; 3) expand capacity; 4) evaluate performance measures; and 4) establish a framework for federal program and TA collaboration. Eligibility limited to state and local governments and non-profits.
Deadline: April 17, 2018
