The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is making $72 million in Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) funding available to up to 25 communities nationwide. YHDP has been informed by youth that have experienced homelessness and is one of the first dedicated federal initiatives that funds permanent housing programs for youth, and focuses on building local coordinated systems for responding to youth homelessness. Funding will be utilized for developing and implementing coordinated community approaches to preventing and ending youth homelessness, including funding for housing units, wrap-around services, and housing support. The Notice of Funding Opportunity outlines the eligible applicants, which include special district governments, county governments, city or township governments, state governments, and other qualified applicants. The application will be open until June 28, 2022.
