The FY 2020 Coronavirus Supplemental Funding provides one-time funding to support ACF recipients/grantees funded under the CARES Act in preventing, preparing for, and responding to COVID-19. This information sheet provides guidance on reporting required of grantees as recipients of this funding.
Based on the administrative relief guidance provided by OMB and ACF for recipients and applicants of federal financial assistance directly impacted by COVID-19, FYSB developed these FAQs for Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) grantees seeking additional information on flexibilities available specific to the administration of grants funded under the RHY program.
Beginning in FY2015, all Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees were required to begin using HMIS, operated by their local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-funded Continuum of Care, or CoC, for all data reporting to the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB). FYSB refers to the expanded system as RHY-HMIS. These frequently asked questions should aid in that reporting.
FYSB's Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) program awarded Maternity Group Homes for Pregnant and Parenting Youth (MGH) grants for FY2019. The MGH program supports homeless pregnant and/or parenting young people, as well as their dependent children. Youth must be between the ages of 16 and 22 to enter the program.
The Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program announced the recipients of Street Outreach Program (SOP) grant funding for FY2019. SOP funding supports programs that work with runaway and homeless youth to help them find housing and services that aim to prevent exploitation and abuse of street youth.
The Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program announced the recipients of Basic Center Program (BCP) grant funding for FY2019. BCP funding helps community-based organizations meet runaway and homeless youths' immediate needs with temporary shelter, counseling, crisis intervention, and aftercare services.
