To ensure that services are meeting the needs of runaway and homeless youth, grantees undergo periodic onsite reviews and evaluations. This manual lays out the review process. It establishes the general governing principles and the uniform Federal requirements for conducting the reviews and reporting the results.

This publication also provides instructional materials that promote consistent practices by all onsite review teams. Consistent practices and criteria are important for making fair and reliable determinations of a grantee’s compliance with Federal grant requirements.

This manual is intended to be used for all RHY programs funded by the Family and Youth Services Bureau, including:

  • Basic Centers
  • Transitional Living Programs
  • Maternity Group Homes
  • Street Outreach Programs
