TPCH Seeks Applications for Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project Funds
TPCH was selected as one of 23 Continuums of Care to participate in Round 3 of the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project. Through the demonstration project, HUD has allocated approximately $4.5M over two years to support community planning, housing, and services for youth experiencing and at-risk of homelessness in Tucson and throughout Pima County.
Since October 2019, the TPCH Youth Action Committee and Homeless Youth Subcommittee have collaborated with HUD staff, technical assistance providers, and local education, employment, health, behavioral health, and legal service partners to develop the Tucson/Pima County Coordinated Community Plan to Prevent and End Youth Homelessness.
The Coordinated Community Plan includes $4,108,265 in project funding to support critical housing and supportive services for youth. Available funding will support two years of project operations in seven project areas:
- Peer Outreach, Engagement and Advocacy ($156,000)
- Navigation and Case Management ($250,000)
- Diversion Services ($422,671)
- Education and Employment Services ($125,000)
- Crisis Transitional Housing – Site Based ($720,000)
