Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA 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. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. All projects must provide shelter and supportive services; choosing one or the other is not an option. 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, Administration on Children, Youth and Families' Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) announces the availability of funds under the Transitional Living Program (TLP). The Purpose of FYSB’s TLP grant program is to implement, enhance, and/or support effective strategies for successful transition to sustainable living for runaway and homeless youth ages 16 to under 22 and/or pregnant and parenting youth ages 16 to under 22 and their dependent child(ren). Projects must provide safe, stable, and appropriate shelter for up to 18 months and, under extenuating circumstances, can be extended to 21 months and provide comprehensive services that support the transition of homeless youth to self-sufficiency and stable, independent living. Through the provision of shelter and an array of comprehensive services, TLP youth will realize improvements in four core outcome areas (i.e., safe and stable housing, education/employment, permanent connections, and social and emotional well-being). 

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 the promotion of self-sufficient living and the prevention of long-term dependency on social services.
