Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and tribes to prevent and address homelessness and support rehousing projects for individuals in need. Applicants must complete required registrations and submit project applications prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness

The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program [24 CFR part 578] is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, Indian Tribes or Tribally Designated Housing Entities [as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs)], and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families, and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

The goal of the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is to support 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 the demonstration program is youth ages 24 and younger experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth.
