HUD Announces Grant to Help Communities Support Needs of Homeless Youth

Nov. 30 is Deadline to Apply

August 30, 2016
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will select up to 10 communities to participate in the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) to develop and execute a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness.
 
The purpose of the YHDP is to learn how communities can successfully approach the goal of preventing and ending youth homelessness by building comprehensive systems of care for young people rather than implementing individual or unconnected projects that serve populations. In order to effectively implement a system that addresses the needs of youth experiencing homelessness, Continuum of Care must understand the subgroups of unaccompanied youth, including pregnant and parenting, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ), and minor age youth experiencing homelessness and the unique challenges they face within their communities.
 
Deadline and Application
 
All applications for this program are due by Nov. 30.
