Revised Transitional Living Program and Maternity Group Homes Funding Opportunity Announcement

On March 23, 2018, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, which provided funding for federal programs for the remainder of fiscal year 2018.  Included in the appropriations is an increase of $8.3 million and language with guidance to FYSB to support continuation of services for Transitional Living Program (TLP) and Maternity Group Home (MGH) grantees whose grants end on April 30, 2018 through the end of FY 2018.  FYSB will work directly with the TLP and MGH grantees impacted by the increased funding to coordinate the extension of their current grants.

As a result of the additional appropriations to support TLP and MGH grantees with end dates of April 30, 2018, FYSB has modified the 2018 Transitional Living Program/Maternity Group Home Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), currently scheduled to close on April 5, 2018. Specifically, FYSB is modifying the FOA to revise the budget and program end dates, as well as the available funding for the initial year award. The revised FOA, published here, makes available up to $18,041,111 for new awards in FY 2018. Grants awarded under this announcement will have a start date of September 29, 2018 and the project period will be for 36 months.  The initial award will be for 12 months and run from September 29, 2018 through September 28, 2019. In addition to the initial 12-month award, the 36-month project period includes two, 12-month, non-competing continuation awards of not more than $200,000 each.

NSPN Participates in Hanes for Good Sock Drive

Socks and underwear are often the most requested items by people experiencing homelessness, as they are much needed items that help provide warmth and protection. Hanes wants to leverage this connection to help even more people in need. Hanes has expanded the Hanes for Good program and selected National Safe Place Network (NSPN) as a partner agency, with the goal of developing a long-term partnership. Thanks to Hanes, NSPN will provide 2,500 socks and 500 pairs of underwear for youth in crisis, at the time they are needed the most. NSPN will distribute them to the over 130 licensed Safe Place agencies serving youth across the United States.

“We are grateful to Hanes for leading the sock drive and recognizing the value of investing in our young people,” said Laurie Jackson, NSPN’s President and CEO. “A clean pair of socks can have a tremendous impact on youth experiencing homelessness or who have run away and are an essential part of outreach and basic care for youth in crisis.”
