Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA private and public nonprofit agencies, including IHEs and faith-based organizations, for outreach programs and services for homeless and runaway youth. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide intervention and prevention services to runaway, homeless, and street youth younger than 21 years of age who have been subjected to or are at risk of being subjected to sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, and severe forms of trafficking.

ACYF, through FYSB, is committed to safety, permanency, well-being, and self-sufficiency for runaway and homeless youth and young adults who cannot live safely with a parent, legal guardian, or relative; and who have no other safe, alternative living arrangement. FYSB’s RHY Program promotes a Positive Youth Development (PYD) framework, which integrates strengths-based approaches to emphasize youths' self-determination, resilience, life skills, and strengths. It provides a meaningful framework to consistently support youth in identifying their strengths and using their skills towards personal growth, decision-making, development, and success. This PYD framework is essential to ensure a young person has a sense of safety, structure, belonging, membership, self-worth, social contribution, independence, and control over one’s life, as well as skills to develop plans for the future, set goals, make decisions, and foster healthy interpersonal relationships. The RHY Program also promotes increasing youth leadership capacity through intentional projects and activities designed to enhance this skill set.

Additionally, FYSB’s RHY Program supports projects to increase prevention and intervention focusing on sexual exploitation and all forms of human trafficking within RHY programs. These ongoing efforts seek to minimize sexual exploitation and trafficking incidents among runaway and homeless youth, equip programs with the necessary tools to prevent these incidents, and identify youth who are either experiencing or at risk of experiencing human trafficking

Goal: Provide street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who are 21 years of age and younger and who have been subjected to, or are at risk of being subjected to, sexual abuse, prostitution, sexual exploitation, and severe forms of trafficking; and to build relationships between street outreach workers and runaway, homeless, and street youth to move youth into stable housing and prepare them for independence.

Vision: Prevent the sexual abuse, human trafficking, or exploitation of young people living on the streets or in unstable housing.
