HUD has published new frequently asked questions (FAQs) for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP):
For general FAQs about YHDP, applicants can identify individual FAQs using a searchable database by visiting the YHDP General FAQs page. Policy-specific YHDP FAQs can be found on the YHDP program page.
If you have a question that is not answered by the existing FAQs, please submit your question to the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Ask A Question (AAQ) portal on the HUD Exchange website. Make sure that the text of your question includes “YHDP” so that it will be appropriately routed to the YHDP team. To submit a question to the CoC Program AAQ portal, select “CoC Program” from the “My question is related to” drop down list on Step 2 of the question submission process.
