FY 2017 Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program Community Selection Announcement

To help end youth homelessness, The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is awarding $43 million to 11 local communities, including 5 rural communities, through its Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP). This project supports a wide range of housing programs including rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, transitional housing, and host homes.
HUD developed YHDP with youth in mind, relying upon the recommendations provided directly from young people who had experienced homelessness. To ensure that the program meets the needs of young people, HUD incorporated many of the same young people who provided recommendations on the program’s design in the application review process. Their assessment helped HUD ensure that applicants understood the needs and preferences of the young people they will serve. HUD also worked closely with its federal partners to help develop the program and review applications, including the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Education (DOE), and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH).
The 11 communities selected will collaborate with a broad array of partners including a Youth Action Board (YAB) and the local or state Public Child Welfare Agency (PCWA). These communities will develop a coordinated community plan to prevent and end youth homelessness to submit to HUD within 4 months. They will also participate in a program evaluation to inform the federal effort to prevent and end youth homelessness going forward and will serve as leaders in the nation on the work to end homelessness among young people.
YHDP recipients will use funding for rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, and transitional housing, and to fund innovative programs, such as host homes. Recipients can begin requesting funding for specific projects as soon as they are ready. YHDP will also support youth-focused performance measurement and coordinated entry systems. Over the next several months, selected communities will work with their youth action boards, child welfare agencies, and other community partners to create a comprehensive community plan to end youth homelessness.
HUD is awarding grants to the following communities where local applicants expressed their own vision for ending youth homelessness:
Applicant Name Funding Amount
San Diego, California $7.94 million
Louisville, Kentucky $3.45 million
Boston, Massachusetts $4.92 million
NW Minnesota (Rural) $1.41 million
Nebraska (Rural) $3.28 million
Northern New Mexico (Rural) $3.37 million
Columbus, Ohio $6.07 million
Nashville, Tennessee $3.54 million
Vermont (Rural) $2 million
Washington (Rural) $4.63 million
Snohomish, Washington $2.39 million
For descriptions of each awarded community, view the FY 2017 YHDP Award Announcements.

5 Essentials to Achieve HMIS Data Integrity  
Crisis Response Network became the first organization to reach 100% data integrity in the Built for Zero project. Here's how they did it. 
Read the Blog >
One of the biggest challenges in HMIS is the issue of data integrity. The process of collecting information in a difficult environment, entering that data accurately, aggregating it correctly and then reporting on it consistently month after month can be filled with frustration for even the best-run organizations.
When we heard our long-time client, Crisis Response Network, became the first organization to reach 100% data integrity in the nationally recognized Built for Zero project, we wanted to know more.
We spoke with Tyler Rosensteel, Director of HMIS at CRN, about data integrity and the success CRN has achieved. He shared these five principles that any HMIS leader can profit from.
