The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) announces the approval of a deviation to supplement the National Runaway Switchboard for the purpose of expanding their services. Congress authorized the establishment of a ``national communications system to assist runaway and homeless youth in making contact with their families and service providers'' through the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended. Funding for the system was first authorized in fiscal year 1980. (The system currently is authorized through Part C, section 331, of the ``Runaway, Homeless, and Missing Children Protection Act,'' Pub. L. 108-96.) The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces an expansion supplement award to the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) for two initiatives; a comprehensive research project on runaway and at-risk youth and a comprehensive database conversion. The results of the comprehensive research project will enable NRS to better understand how to communicate with youth and develop strategies to connect with them and them with the NRS. The comprehensive database conversion will enhance the Switchboard's capability to download and manage information. This project will provide the NRS with the internal controls necessary to query and analyze data collected in their crisis logs. It is anticipated that the enhanced internal controls will result in a significant improvement in the way needs of runaway, homeless and other youth in at-risk situations are met. This expansion supplement is for a nine month project period for the amount of $162,637.

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces the awarding of ten supplemental awards in the amount of $1,932,300 to fund Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance cooperative agreements. The average amount per grantee would be $192,230. Section 439 of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109-288) authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award grants for the purpose of supporting the establishment or expansion and operation of community-based programs to provide one-on-one mentoring relationships between a child of incarcerated parent(s) and a caring, supportive adult mentor under the Mentoring Children of Prisoners Program (MCP). This supplemental funding will be used to access the capacity building expertise of the ten Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Providers for the purpose of enhancing the capacity of newly awarded lower scoring community and faith-based MCP grantees. It is expected that the supplementing of the ten RHY Training and Technical Assistance Providers will result in the reduction in program start-up issues and other barriers to high performance. It is critical that these MCP grantees receive the best possible services as it relates to enhancing their capacity to develop and maintain a quality mentoring program. The following agencies are receiving grant funds for a twelve month project period:
