The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) at the Administration on Children and Families at HHS has announced the Fiscal Year 2020 Grant Awards for the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA):

Congratulations to all those grantees who received funding! If you are a new grantee (or even if you are not), FYSB does have resources that can help you manage your federal RHYA grant:

For those who applied and did not receive a grant, please know that NN4Y knows that RHYA is a severely under-resourced vital federal program. Every grant cycle many skilled, caring, and worthy programs do not receive a grant due to a severe lack of resources. This is why NN4Y so strongly advocates for increased funding for the RHYA program. We encourage you to join NN4Y in all of our advocacy actions so we can continue to increase and improve the federal government’s response to youth and young adult homelessness.

The Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) has a new operator, Youth Collaboratory in close partnership with Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago. This change in RHYTTAC operators was effective September 30, 2020.
