Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit organization, for-profit organization, government agency, tribe, IHE, or school district to operate a national program to assist vulnerable youth. Funding is intended to increase the safety, wellbeing, and self-sufficiency of youth in need across the Nation. Eligible programs will focus on the following goals: prevent youth from running away and becoming homeless, and link youth with a family member or guardian, and/or an available resource that can provide and/or assist the youth in acquiring needed services.

The NCS Program is a dedicated toll-free, U.S. national communication system that provides information, referral services, crisis intervention, prevention approaches, and communication services to vulnerable, at-risk, and runaway and homeless youth and their families or legal guardians.

To fulfill the objectives of the legislation, the NCS must provide, among other services, a neutral and confidential channel of communication that is available on a 24-hours per day, seven days per week, basis throughout the United States so that youth contemplating running away and runaway and homeless youth may re-establish contact with their parents or legal guardians if possible. The NCS Program is also expected to work closely and collaboratively with FYSB to fulfill its mission as the federally funded communication system for runaway and homeless youth. 

In accordance with section 331 of the Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Act, priority will be given to applicants that have experience in providing telephone services to vulnerable youth, at-risk youth, and runaway and homeless youth. Telephone services include calls, emails, texts/SMS, and chat.
