Department of Health and Human Services: Transitional Living ProgramDeadline: June 28, 2021
The purpose of the Transitional Living Program (TLP) grant program is to implement, enhance, and/or support effective strategies for a successful transition to sustainable living for runaway and homeless youth, ages 16 to under 22 years of age that are experiencing homelessness. Transitional Living projects provide a safe, stable, and nurturing environment for up to 18 months or, under extenuating circumstances, up to 21 months (635 days). Young people who have not yet reached their 18th birthday at the end of the 21-month period may continue to receive services until they turn 18. The primary goal of the TLP is to help runaway and homeless youth establish sustainable living and well-being for themselves and, if applicable, their dependent child(ren).
Note: Applicants seeking to provide services only to pregnant/parenting runaway and homeless youth should apply under the Maternity Group Home (MGH) separate funding opportunity.
All TLP projects must provide shelter and supportive services. TLP Projects will include the following components:
- Safe, Stable, and Appropriate Shelter—TLP Projects must provide safe and stable housing (i.e., host family home, supervised or scattered apartments, congregate care or group homes, and/or shelter) throughout a continuous period not to exceed 540 days, or in exceptional circumstances 635 days, except that a young person who has not reached 18 years of age on the last day of the 635-day period may, under certain circumstances, remain in the program until the youth’s 18th birthday. See solicitation for additional requirements.
- Comprehensive Youth-Centered Services Models including Social and Emotional Well-being and Strength-based Approaches, outreach implementation strategies, gateway services, screening and assessment, and case management. See solicitation for details.

Note: Grantees must provide at least a 10 percent match of the total approved cost of the project.
