Summary: HHS Final Rule Regarding Runaway & Homeless Youth Programs

Summary: HHS Final Rule Regarding Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs

The addition of the new RHY (Runaway and Homeless Youth) Final Rule provides clarification and outlines additional requirements for Basic Center, Transitional Living and Street Outreach Programs. These changes build on existing requirements present in the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act and changes made via the Reconnecting Homeless Youth Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-378). The new rule provides opportunities to strengthen existing services for runaway and homeless youth across the United States. MANY reviewed the new rule and will provide resources and support as organizations make necessary changes to existing RHY programs. The new requirements will apply to existing funded projects beginning with the new fiscal year (October 1, 2017). In addition, the new rule immediately impacts all future RHY grant applications and projects.
