SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for renewal of the information collection described in Section A.

The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on September 2, 2016 at 81 FR 60719.

A. Overview of Information Collection

Title of Information Collection: Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP).

OMB Control Number: 2506-0210.

Type of Request: Renewal of previously approved collection.

Form Number: Youth Homelessness Demonstration Application (all parts), SF 424, HUD-2991, HUD-2993, HUD-2880, and SF-LLL, HUD-50070.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The appropriation for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) was made available through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. L. 114-113, approved December 18, 2015), “the Act”. The Act appropriated $33,000,000 to HUD “to implement projects to demonstrate how a comprehensive approach to serving homeless youth, age 24 and under, in up to 10 communities, including at least four rural communities, can dramatically reduce youth homelessness,” $5 million to HUD “to provide technical assistance on youth homelessness, and collection, analysis, and reporting of data and performance measures under the comprehensive approaches to serve homeless youth, in addition to and in coordination with other technical assistance funds provided under this title,” and a further $2.5 million to HUD “for homeless youth program evaluations conducted in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services.” Through this NOFA, HUD is holding a competition in order to identify those 10 communities that will make best use of the congressionally appropriated funds and provide HUD with the best opportunity to meet the YHDP objectives. Without asking for this information, HUD will be unable to meet the congressional mandate within the Act. Once communities have been selected, HUD must collect individual grant applications to meet the Act requirement that YHDP projects be renewable under the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program authorized by the McKinney-Vento Act, as amended by S. 896 The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 (42 U.S.C. 11371 et seq.) and the CoC Program Homeless Assistance Grant Application requirements (OMB 2506-0112). Finally, HUD must collect the Coordinated Community Plan to meet the appropriations requirement “to demonstrate how a comprehensive approach to serving homeless youth . . . can dramatically reduce youth homelessness.” In HUD's experience leading similar coordinated community efforts (e.g. LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Pilot, OMB 2506-0204), the planning process is a challenging and resource intensive endeavor, requiring systems analysis, values sharing, priority negotiating, the creation of leadership structure, the development of a logic model, and a plan for constant feedback and continuous process improvement, among other things. The submission of a coordinated community plan will allow HUD to assess the ability of the selected communities to appropriately use the funding made available by Congress.
