Grants to Address Youth Homelessness Available Through HUD

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) just announced new resources, technical assistance, and regulatory flexibilities to support their efforts to address homelessness, especially among youth, people in unsheltered settings, and people in rural areas. HUD has made $50 million available as Youth Homelessness System Improvement (YHSI) grants for communities nationwide.

These funds are intended to focus on improving or creating response systems and building capacity that will direct efforts across multiple systems including education, justice, and child welfare; collect and use data on at-risk youth and youth experiencing homelessness; develop strong leaders within a community; and improve the coordination, communication, operation, and administration of homeless assistance projects to better serve youth, including prevention and diversion strategies.
