Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to USA and territories government agencies, Tribes, IHEs, and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations, for transitional housing and related supportive services for vulnerable youth and young adults.

Funding is intended to provide safety, permanency, well-being and self-sufficiency for runaway and homeless youth and young adults who cannot live safely with a parent, legal guardian, or relative, and who have no other safe, alternative living arrangement.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) supports organizations and communities that work every day to end youth homelessness, adolescent pregnancy, and domestic violence. FYSB works toward a future in which all of the nation’s youth, individuals, and families - no matter what challenges they may face - can live healthy, productive, violence-free lives. FYSB’s Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program is accepting applications for the Transitional Living Program (TLP). The purpose of FYSB’s TLP grant program is to provide safe, stable, and appropriate housing for youth ages 16 to under 22 years of age and their young families who are experiencing homelessness. Housing for such youth may be provided for 18 months (540 days) or, under extenuating circumstances, up to 21 months (635 days).

Project Goal and Vision:

  • Goal: The primary goal of the TLP is to help runaway and homeless youth between the ages of 16 to under 22 years of age establish sustainable living and well-being for themselves and, if applicable, their dependent child(ren).
  • Vision: Successfully transition youth experiencing homelessness into adulthood through self-sufficient and sustainable living and learning skills to promote economic independence in order to prevent long-term dependency on social services.
