Grants to USA private and public nonprofit entities including IHEs, and faith-based and community organizations for transitional housing and related supportive services for homeless youth and young adults ages 16 to 22. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. 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.

FYSB's RHY Program promotes a strengths-based approach, which emphasizes youth’s self-determination and strengths, and provides a meaningful framework to consistently support youth in identifying strengths and using those skills towards personal growth, development and success. This Positive Youth Development (PYD) framework is essential to ensure a young person has a sense of safety and structure; belonging and membership; self-worth and social contribution; independence and control over one’s life; skills to develop plans for the future and set goals; and closeness in interpersonal relationships. Lastly, the RHY Program promotes increasing youth leadership capacity through intentional projects and activities designed to enhance this skill set.

FYSB continues to support projects to increase human trafficking (sex and labor) prevention and intervention within RHY programs. These ongoing efforts seek to minimize sexual exploitation and trafficking incidents among runaway and homeless youth, equip programs with the necessary tools to prevent these incidents, and identify youth who are victims of trafficking or those at risk of becoming victims.

Pursuant to section 322(a) of the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA), projects must, “...establish, strengthen, or fund a transitional living youth project for homeless youth,” and, “…develop an adequate plan to ensure proper referral of homeless youth to social service, law enforcement, educational (including post-secondary education), vocational, training (including services and programs for youth available under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (or most recently, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, Pub. L 113-128)), welfare (including programs under the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996), legal service, and health care programs and to help integrate and coordinate such services for youths.”

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 establish sustainable living and well-being for themselves and, if applicable, their dependent child(ren).
- Vision: Successfully transition youth experiencing homelessness into adulthood through the promotion of self-sufficient living and the prevention of long-term dependency on social services.
