Funding Type: 
Due Date: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is seeking applicants for research proposals for estimating the incidence and prevalence of youth homelessness, per section 345 of the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act. The objective of this research is to conduct quantitative and qualitative social science research methods to produce estimates of the incidence and prevalence of runaway and homeless individuals who are not less than 13 years of age but are less than 26 years of age. HUD seeks proposals for information and methods that supplement the findings from the Voices of Youth Count (VoYC) Study. Such additional information may include the integration of administrative data from local, state, and federal institutions that engage at-risk or homeless youth, such as child welfare agencies, juvenile justice and correctional systems, schools, and hospitals.

HUD intends to award 5 cooperative agreements. The estimated total research funding is $2 million and the individual award ranging from $400,000 to $2 million.

Applications are due on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. View the full announcement at for additional information about this opportunity.
