U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Transitional Living ProgramDeadline: July 1, 2019
The Transitional Living Program (TLP) will help runaway and homeless youth between the ages of 16 to under 22 establish sustainable living and well-being for themselves and, if applicable, their dependent child(ren), successfully transitioning youth experiencing homelessness into adulthood through the promotion of self-sufficient living and the prevention of long-term dependency on social services.
TLP Projects are responsible for consistently enhancing short-term outcome areas for youth in the four core outcome areas:
- Social and Emotional Well-Being: Youth or pregnant and parenting youth will connect to systems of care providers that are trauma-informed, promote positive and healthy messages, and assist youth with improved physical health, dental health, and mental health.
- Permanent Connections: Youth or pregnant and parenting youth will experience positive ongoing attachments to families, communities, schools, and other social networks. Pregnant and/or parenting youth have developed healthy family engagement strategies and parenting skills.
- Education or Employment: Youth or pregnant and parenting youth will connect to school including post-secondary education or vocational training program, learn or improve interviewing and improve job attainment skills, and secure employment.
- Safe and Stable Housing: Youth or pregnant and parenting youth and their dependent child(ren) will transition to safe and stable housing that appropriately matches their level of need after leaving a TLP to include: rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, moving in with family, residential treatment center, or substance abuse treatment facility.
