Proposed Projects

Title: Evaluation of the Transitional Living Program (TLP).

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA), as amended by Public Law 106-71 (42 U.S.C. 5701 et seq.), provides for the Transitional Living Program (TLP), a residential program lasting up to 18 months designed to prepare older homeless youth ages 16-21 for a healthy and self-sufficient adulthood. Section 119 of RHYA requires a study on the long-term housing outcomes of youth after exiting the program. In addition to collecting information on housing outcomes, the study will also consider the living, employment, education, and family situation of the youth before and after their time in the TLP. This information will be used to better understand the most effective practices in improving long-term outcomes of youth in an effort to guide program improvements.

Respondents: (1) Youth ages 16-21 participating in Transitional Living Programs and (2) the Executive Director and Program Manager representing TLP grantees.
