FY 2019/2020 YHDP NOFO Applications Due Today, July 27, 2021
The deadline to apply for the FY 2019/2020 Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is today, July 27, 2021. Applications should be submitted via Grants.gov.
YHDP is an initiative designed to address systemic responses to youth homelessness and significantly reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness. Through this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), HUD will award approximately $145 million in up to 50 participating communities (eight of which will be rural). All communities are encouraged to consider applying.
HUD recently posted several resources to help communities as they create their application for the YHDP:
- Rural Tools: These tools are designed to help communities determine if their application for YHDP should be identified as rural.
- Rural CoCs for FY 2019/2020 YHDP NOFO: This file lists all Continuums of Care (CoCs) that are considered rural for the YHDP FY 2019/2020 competition if the application covers the entire geographic area of the CoC
- FY 2019/2020 YHDP Rural Area Worksheet: Applicants should use this tool if they are considering applying for less than the entire area covered by the CoC
- FY 2019/2020 YHDP NOFO Webinar: The presentation slides and transcript are now available on the YHDP page on HUD.gov. The recording of the presentation will be posted to the YHDP page soon.
- Debriefing Document from Previous YHDP Competition: HUD posted a previous debriefing document on the YHDP page on HUD.gov, with no community scores, to assist communities who did not apply or did not pass threshold in their application for the FY 2018 YHDP application. Please note, this document has general comments from reviewers on how applications could be improved.
