Determining Youth and Young Adult Eligibility for Services: Grantee Tools and Processesclick to download
The Children’s Bureau, within the Administration for Children and Families (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), is funding a multiphase grant program to build the evidence base on what works to prevent homelessness among youth and young adults who have been involved in the child welfare system. This program is called Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH) and it has three phases, YARH-1, YARH-2, and YARH-3.
This brief describes the tools and processes YARH-2 grantees implemented to identify and screen youth and young adults who might be eligible to participate in their comprehensive service models. The brief should be of interest to individuals designing and implementing programs to serve youth and young adults in similar circumstances, including service providers, program administrators, program evaluators, and funders.
