Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and state and local government agencies in rural and urban areas for programs to prevent and eliminate youth homelessness. Applicants must complete required registrations before applying. Funding is intended to establish a successful framework for federal funding, to assess performance measures, to build capacity, evaluate the community approaches to the issues of homelessness, and to build national momentum in the effort to end youth homelessness.
The goal of the YHDP is to support up to 25 communities, at least 8 of which will be rural, in 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 this demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth, where no member of the household is older than 24.
The program has five primary objectives:
- Build national momentum: Motivate state and local homelessness stakeholders across the country to prevent and end youth homelessness by forming new partnerships, addressing system barriers, conducting needs assessments, testing promising strategies, and evaluating their outcomes;
- Evaluate the coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness, including local and state partnerships across sectors and other planning operations;
- Expand capacity: Demonstration communities will expand their capacity to serve homeless youth, pilot new models of assistance, and determine what array of interventions is necessary to serve the target population in their community.
- Evaluate performance measures: Evaluate the use of performance measurement strategies designed to better measure youth outcomes and the connection between youth program outcomes and youth performance measures on overall system performance for the Continuum of Care (CoC);
- Establish a framework for federal program and TA collaboration. Determine the most effective way for federal resources to interact within a state or local system to support a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness.

HUD expects to make approximately 25 awards.
For each community selected under this competition, HUD will make a minimum of $1 million available for total YHDP funding. The maximum award amount is $15,000,000 per budget period. This total funding may be split among any number of projects in the community.
Estimated project start date is August 15, 2019. Estimated project end date is August 14, 2021.
Project applicants within selected communities may apply for project grants designed to be implemented immediately following the community selection announcement and up until September 1, 2020 or until the community ceases to participate or the available funds have been depleted (whichever is earlier).
Obligated funds remain available for expenditure until September 30, 2025, except that HUD may establish an earlier expenditure deadline through a grant agreement.
All grants for projects will be for an initial 2-year grant term, except for CoC planning projects which will be for a 1-year grant term and are non-renewable.
