FYSB is Accepting Applications for an LGBTQ Capacity Building Grant for Transitional Living Programs

The Family and Youth Services Bureau is accepting applications for the Runaway and Homeless Youth Capacity Building for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Questioning Youth Populations.

The purpose of this grant is to build the capacity of Transitional Living Programs to serve youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) who are experiencing homelessness and who are disproportionately affected by homelessness compared to their heterosexual counterparts. The intent of this targeted 3-year cooperative agreement is to support the development of or strengthen efforts to address the needs of LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness. Efforts may include identifying innovative LGBTQ specific intervention strategies, determining culturally appropriate screening and assessment tools, learning of services and systems of support that respond to the needs of the LGBTQ youth, pinpointing the gaps in services, and better understanding the needs of LGBTQ youth served by RHY agencies.
