Title: Runaway and Homeless Youth Program Regulations.
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: The Runaway and Homeless Youth program is administered by the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB). The authorizing legislation for the Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program, Public Law 106-71 (42 U.S.C. 5701), Section 311, set forth provisions for awarding grants through a competitive process to public and nonprofit private entities (and combinations of such entities) to establish and operate local programs to provide services for runaway and homeless youth and their families. For the competitive grant making process, eligible entities are required to describe their goals, plans (scope of activities), capacities and other qualifications for receiving Federal funding to operate the type of youth services programs authorized under the RHY Act. The information is requested annually through the RHY Program Announcement. The program regulations implementing provisions of the RHY Act limit grants project period to three years (a limit not specified in the statue). The final rule would change the project periods from a maximum of three years to five years. The regulation change is technical in nature and will allow FYSB the flexibility and discretion to award some grants for five-year periods, instead of three years. The regulatory change will not increase the burden for any entities. The change will only affect the frequency of application submission.
Respondents: Community-based Organizations, States, and Tribes.Start Printed Page 67373
