In Section II, the reference to Appendix A has been updated to match the modified text.

In Section IV.3, the deadline for applications has been extended two days and is listed as April 13, 201 5. The Administration for Children and Families' (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families' (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) will award funding for the Basic Center Program (BCP).

The purpose of the BCP is to provide an alternative for runaway and homeless youth who might otherwise end up with law enforcement or in the child welfare, mental health, or juvenile justice systems.

The BCP works to establish or strengthen community-based programs that meet the immediate needs of runaway and homeless youth and their families.

The programs provide youth up to age 18 years with emergency shelter, food, clothing, counseling and referrals for health care.

Most basic centers can provide 21 days of shelter for up to 20 youth at a time.

There are exceptions for jurisdictions that have different standards for licensing.

Basic Centers seek to reunite young people with their families, whenever possible, or to locate appropriate alternative placements.

Services will include:
street-based services; home-based services for families with youth at risk of separation from the family; drug abuse education and prevention services; and at the request of runaway and homeless youth, testing for sexually transmitted infections.
