Welcome to RHYTTAC

The Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) is the training and technical assistance provider for all federally-funded runaway and homeless youth (RHY) grantees.

RHYTTAC:

  • Provides direct capacity building support for programs and communities in the form of technical assistance, training, and online communities;
  • Develops tools and resources, and manages multiple communication channels for dissemination of those resources; and,
  • Leads a coordinated strategy across federal departments and other national grantees.
