Grants to USA nonprofits, IHEs, and agencies for group homes to provide shelter for youth ages 16 to 22 who are pregnant or already parenting. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide these young families with safe and stable housing, while providing them with services such as education, parenting skills, and job training.

The purpose of FYSB’s MGH program is to provide safe, stable, and appropriate shelter only for pregnant and/or parenting youth ages 16 to under 22 and their dependent child(ren) for 18 months and, under extenuating circumstances, up to 21 months. Service providers must accommodate for the needs and safety of the dependent children to include facility safety standards for infants and children on the premises. MGH services include, but are not limited to, parenting skills, child development, family budgeting, and health and nutrition education, in addition to the required services provided under the Transitional Living Program to help MGH youth realize improvements in four core outcome areas. The MGH combination of shelter and services is designed to promote long-term, economic independence to ensure the well-being of the youth and their child(ren).

Goal: The primary goal of the MGH is to promote long-term, economic independence to ensure the well-being of youth and young families, and preventing intergenerational poverty by strengthening their family.

Vision: Successfully transition pregnant and parenting youth who are experiencing homelessness into adulthood through the promotion of self-sufficient living and the prevention of long-term dependency on social services.

For example, in order to meet the match requirements, a project requesting $250,000.00 in ACF (federal) funds must provide a non-federal share of the approved total project cost of at least $27,778.00 , which is 10 percent of total approved project cost of $277,778.00.
