Yes. Applicants may establish a Youth Action Board during the period of time before the application is due to HUD. The Youth Action Board must:

  • Have at least 3 members;
  • Be comprised of youth, age 24 and younger, at least 2/3 of whom are homeless or formerly homeless, who are included in policy making decisions of the CoC, particularly on policies that relate to preventing and ending youth homelessness; and
  • Have elected an authorized representative from among its members and submitted a signed letter with the NOFA application confirming that all of the partnership requirements described in Section II.C.1.d have been met.
