Runaway and Homeless Youth Program - Final Rule

The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) will host a 90-minute webinar training at 3:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 26, 2017, to discuss the newly released Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program Final Rule. The new rule, published on December 20, 2016, in the Federal Register, details additional requirements that apply to the Basic Center, Transitional Living, and Street Outreach programs, including non-discrimination, background checks, outreach, and training, and establishes program performance standards for grantees providing services to eligible youth and their families. Performance standards build on standards already used as priorities in funding opportunity announcements and awards. This rule also updates procedures for soliciting applications and awarding grants.

Who Should Participate:
RHY grantees and organizations working with, and on behalf of, runaway and homeless youth are highly encouraged to attend.

When:
January 26, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. (EST)

Presenters:
Debbie Powell, Deputy Associate Commissioner, FYSB
Kimberly Waller, Policy Advisor, FYSB
Christopher Holloway, Program Manager, Runaway and Homeless Youth Program
