Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA private and public nonprofit agencies, including IHEs, and agency networks for street-based outreach programs and services for homeless and runaway youth. Applicants are advised to create or verify the required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to provide intervention and prevention services to runaway, homeless, and street youth younger than 21 years of age who have been subjected to or are at risk of being subjected to sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, and severe forms of trafficking in persons.

The goal of the SOP is to increase young people’s personal safety, social and emotional well-being, self-sufficiency, and to help them build permanent connections with families, communities, schools, and other positive social networks. These services, which are provided in areas where street youth congregate, are designed to assist such youth in making healthy choices and to provide them access to shelter and services which include: outreach, gateway services, screening and assessment, harm reduction, access to emergency shelter, crisis stabilization, drop-in centers, which can be optional, and linkages/referrals to services.

SOP Projects include the following components:
- Conduct Street Outreach and Provide Access to Shelter
- Comprehensive Youth-Centered Service Model
- Street-Based Services to RHY Victims of Trafficking
- Sustainability Plan
