For purposes of this announcement, "rural" is defined as any geographical area that:
(a) has a population under 20,000; and (b) is located outside a Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area.

This collaborative Demonstration project, funding States to work with local community-based organizations, is intended to influence policies, programs and practices that affect the design and delivery of services to runaway and homeless youth in Transitional Living Programs (TLP), as well as to homeless youth aging out of State child welfare systems and into Independent Living Programs (ILP).

The Children's Bureau of the Administration for Children and Families will provide technical assistance to support the collaborative engagement of ILP grantees in the project.
