Start Preamble

Title: National Extranet Optimized Runaway and Homeless Youth Management Information System (NEORHYMIS)

OMB No.: 0970-0123.

Description: The Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA), as amended by Public Law 106-71 (42 U.S.C. 5701 et seq.), mandates that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) report regularly to Congress on the status of HHS-funded programs serving runaway and homeless youth. Organizations funded under the Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) program are required by section 312(b)(7) of the statute to meet several data collection and reporting requirements. These requirements include maintenance of client statistical records and submission of annual program reports profiling the characteristics of the youth and families served and the services provided to them. The October 2003 reauthorization of the Act maintained the requirements as described in the standing legislation.

Data from the National Extranet Optimized Runaway and Homeless Youth Management Information System (NEORHYMIS) support grantee organizations as they carry out a variety of integrated, ongoing responsibilities and projects. These include meeting statutory and regulatory reporting requirements, maintaining program service and management information for internal uses, tracking youth in their programs, accountability monitoring, management improvement, research, and evaluation.

Respondents: Recipients of grants from the HHS/ACF/Family and Youth Services Bureau to operate emergency shelters for runaway youth, transitional programs for homeless youth, and street outreach programs.Start Printed Page 29732
