  • Start Preamble

    Title: Evaluation of the Transitional Living Program (TLP).

    OMB No.: 0970-0383.

    Description: The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) and the Office of Planning, Research, Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) are requesting to continue collecting data as part of a currently approved information collection (OMB No. 0970-0383). The purpose is to continue baseline data collection at study enrollment and follow-up data collection for the Evaluation of the Transitional Living Program (TLP). The TLP evaluation was designed to examine the effects of FYSB's Transitional Living Program on runaway and homeless youth, focusing on such outcomes as housing and homelessness, education or training, employment, social connections, socio-emotional well-being, and risk behaviors.

    Data collection will include three primary surveys, previously approved by OMB: (1) A survey administered at the time of TLP enrollment (baseline), (2) a survey administered 6 months after enrollment, which will collect information on short-terms outcomes; and (3) a survey administered at 12 months, which will collect information on longer-term outcomes. Participants will be enrolled through the TLP study sites.

    Respondents: Runaway and homeless youth ages 16 to 22 who agree to participate in the study upon enrollment into one of the TLP study sites.
