Excellent News: Additional 100-Day Challenges in 2017


Over the course of 100 days, “we did everything differently.”

We have some excellent news to share: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), as part of its commitment to ending Youth Homelessness, in alignment with the goals set forth in Opening Doors, the Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, is supporting 10 communities to engage in 100-Day Challenges relating to youth homelessness in 2017. HUD has contracted with Technical Assistance providers to deliver the 100-Day Challenges in the ten communities that are selected.


Your community is eligible to express interest in launching a 100-Day Challenge as part of this opportunity if:

  • You are a community who applied for the HUD Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP)
  • Your community met the YHDP threshold criteria [please reach out via the email below if you’d like to confirm]
  • You were not one of the 10 YHDP communities selected

Communities who meet these criteria have until 4/28/17 to express interest.  For more information or further details on how to apply please reach youth@homebaseccc.org.

These HUD-funded 100-Day Challenges will continue to support national learning, building off of the success and momentum from the 100-Day Challenges in Austin, Cleveland and Los Angeles in 2016.
