New Rule Strengthens Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs to Better Serve Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Published: December 20, 2016

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).The rule 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 RHY 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 and awarding grants.

Read the full rule in the Federal Register.
