Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Funding for Street Outreach Program
Deadline: June 24
Every day, in communities across the country, young people run from or are asked to leave homes characterized by abuse, neglect or parental drug and alcohol abuse. Once on the streets, these young people often lose touch with the caring adults in their extended families, schools and communities that can help and protect them. As a result, they frequently fall victim to exploitation and abuse. They disproportionately suffer from serious health, behavioral and emotional problems. And they are often unable to find or keep the safe, stable housing that is so crucial to a successful transition to adulthood. Since 1996, projects funded by the Street Outreach Program have provided services to youth living on the streets and in unstable situations by reaching out to them. These projects aim to increase young people’s safety, well-being, and self-sufficiency, and to help them build permanent connections with caring adults, with the goal of getting them off the streets.

ACF Funding for Basic Center Program
Deadline: June 24
In the early 1970s, an alarming number of youth were leaving home without parental permission, crossing state lines, and falling victim to exploitation and other dangers of street life. In response to the widespread concern about the problem of runaway and homeless youth, Congress authorized the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act of 1974 (RHYA), which provided financial support for states through a competitive grant program. The implementation and administration of the program was placed in the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Today, FYSB continues to administer the Basic Center Program (BCP) funding to the organizations and shelters that serve and protect runaway, homeless, and street youth. BCP funds are allotted annually based on each state’s relative population of youth less than 18 years of age, subject to certain adjustments as described in 42 U.S.C. section 5711 (b). To learn more, visit here.
