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.
The RHY (Runaway and Homeless Youth) final rule reflects existing statutory requirements in the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act and changes made via the Reconnecting Homeless Youth Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-378).
We spoke to Linda Byrd-Johnson, Senior Director of the Student Service area within the Office of Postsecondary Education at ED, and Debbie Powell, Deputy Associate Commissioner of FYSB, to discuss why collaboration between HHS and ED is so important and what it could potentially mean for diverse populations of disconnected youth.
