Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and government and tribal agencies to provide community-based counseling and short-term shelter services for homeless and runaway youth (under 18 years). Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The vision of the program is to establish and/or strengthen community-based projects that meet the immediate needs of youth who have run away or have left home without permission, youth experiencing homelessness, and youth living on the street through the provisions of temporary shelter and services that encourage family reunification, when in the best interest of the youth.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) supports organizations and communities that work every day to end youth homelessness, adolescent pregnancy, and domestic violence. FYSB’s Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program is accepting applications for the Basic Center Program (BCP). The purpose of the BCP is to provide emergency shelter and counseling services to runaway and homeless youth, under the age of 18, who have left home without permission of their parents or guardians; have been forced to leave their home; cannot live safely with a parent, legal guardian, or relative; have no other safe alternative living arrangement; or other homeless youth who might otherwise end up in contact with law enforcement or in the child welfare, mental health, or juvenile justice systems.
