The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is pleased to announce Regional Meetings for Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program Grantees.  The objectives for the one-day, regionally based, meetings are to:

  1. Provide an opportunity for face to face time between grantees, federal project officers and regional program managers;
  2. Provide an opportunity for networking with colleagues to build support, share information, and foster future collaborative efforts;
  3. Provide information and direction from FYSB critical for operating programs which adhere to federal standards;
  4. Increase awareness of Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance (RHYTTAC); and
  5. Strengthen the foundation for on-going regional networking and support, improve communication with FYSB and RHYTTAC, and strengthen relationships.

FYSB invites each grantee to send at least one staff member, who is in a program management or lead position, to represent their organization and to disseminate the information shared.  FYSB is currently securing locations for the meetings for dates in March through July.  You will be notified of the confirmed location, date, and agenda for your regional meeting when planning is finalized. 

Please note these meetings are optional and stipends are not provided. While each grantee may use RHY federal funds to attend this meeting, FYSB recognizes you may not have budgeted to attend this event. It is anticipated these events will be repeated annually.

FYSB and RHYTTAC look forward to connecting with you soon.
