Title V Competitive Sexual Risk Avoidance Education

Administration for Children and Families 

The purpose of the Title V Competitive SRAE Program is to fund projects to implement sexual risk avoidance education that teaches participants how to voluntarily refrain from non-marital sexual activity. Successful applicants are expected to submit plans for the implementation of sexual risk avoidance education that normalizes the optimal health behavior of avoiding non-marital sexual activity, with a focus on the future health, psychological well-being, and economic success of youth. Applicants must agree to: 1) use medically accurate information referenced to peer-reviewed publications by educational, scientific, governmental, or health organizations; implement an evidence-based approach integrating research findings with practical implementation that aligns with the needs and desired outcomes for the intended audience; and 2) teach the benefits associated with self-regulation, success sequencing for poverty prevention, healthy relationships, goal setting, and resisting sexual coercion, dating violence, and other youth risk behaviors such as underage drinking or illicit drug use without normalizing teen sexual activity. The Title V SRAE legislation requires unambiguous and primary emphasis and context for each of the A-F topics to be addressed in program implementation. Additionally, there is a requirement that messages to youth normalize the optimal health behavior of avoiding non-marital sexual activity.

Meeting the Basic Needs of Crime Victims in Underserved Communities

Office for Victims of Crime 

OVC is seeking applications from organizations that provide culturally responsive services to crime victims and survivors from communities that have been historically underserved, marginalized, adversely affected by inequality, and disproportionately impacted by crime, violence, and victimization. These victims often face barriers that prevent them from accessing critical services. Unaddressed needs can lead to long-term physical, emotional, social, and financial problems for survivors. Through this funding opportunity, OVC will support services for victims by organizations that understand the complex, multilayered, culturally specific challenges that crime victims from these communities face when attempting to access assistance and services. Organizations could use this grant to address these services related to crime victimization:

  • a shortage of rental units that provide temporary or transitional housing for victims;
  • inadequate funding for food (e.g., grocery gift cards, setting up/stocking a free food pantry);
  • lack of funds for bus fare, subway or metro fare, ride-sharing expenses, and other transportation-related services; • a need for clothing for adults, infants, children, or teens;
  • covering expenses for job-readiness such as appropriate work attire, or fees for apprenticeship programs or skill building courses;
  • additional staff or staff time to provide and oversee these services; or
  • other challenges related to meeting the basic needs of underserved victims.

Special consideration will be given to organizations that have not received OVC funding since 2020.

Youth Homeless Demonstration Program (YHDP)

Department of Housing and Urban Development 

The purpose of the YHDP is to implement projects that demonstrate how a comprehensive approach to serving homeless youth age 24 and under can dramatically reduce youth homelessness. HUD will select up to 25 communities to participate in YDHP to develop and execute a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness. Only Continuum of Care (CoC) Collaborative Applicants may apply for a community under this NOFO. Communities represented by the CoC Collaborative Applicant must include a Youth Action Board (YAB), the local or state public child welfare agency, and a broad array of other partners. The population to be served by this demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth. In order to effectively implement a system that addresses the needs of youth experiencing homelessness, CoCs must understand the subgroups of unaccompanied youth and incorporate those understandings into the YHDP CCP and awarded projects. This will require CoCs to use innovative practices to design better projects and strong comprehensive plans to prevent and end youth homelessness.
