Nebraska (CCFL) one of 11 communities to receive HUD Grant to end Youth Homelessness

To help end youth homelessness, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is awarding $43 million to 11 local communities, including five rural areas, through its Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP). This program supports a wide range of housing interventions including rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, transitional housing, and host homes.

Nebraska received $3.28 million with the mission of the Connected Youth Initiative (CYI) to bring young people together with service providers, funders and decision-makers to create supportive communities committed to improving outcomes for youth ages 14-24 with foster care, juvenile justice or homelessness experiences. It is designed to build strong collaborations and infrastructure necessary for community ownership of youth well-being and the realization of improved youth outcomes.
