HUD Invites Applications for its Youth Homeless Demonstration Program Renewal and Replacement Grants

Updated: Sep 21

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is accepting applications for its Continuum of Care Competition and Noncompetitive Award of Youth Homeless Demonstration Program Renewal and Replacement Grants.


The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities (as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs)), and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. The goal of the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is to support the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness and sharing that experience with and mobilizing communities around the country toward the same end. The population to be served by the demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth.


Approximately $2,656,000,000 is available in this FY 2021 CoC Program NOFO, including approximately $77,000,000, available for non-competitive YHDP renewal and replacement expiring grants, and up to $102,000,000 available for Domestic Violence (DV) Bonus projects (of which up to $50,000,000 is carried over from the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020), described in Section II.B.5 of this NOFO. HUD may add to the total amount with available funds that have been carried over or recaptured from previous fiscal years.


Deadline: The deadline for submitting applications to HUD for the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition is 8:00 PM EST on November 16, 2021. Applicants must complete and submit their applications in e-snaps at https://esnaps.hud.gov/.
