Audit of the Administration for Children and Families Transitional Living Program

HHS's Administration for Children and Families (ACF) provides funds to public and nonprofit organizations for administering the Transitional Living Program (TLP). TLP supports the delivery of various services to youths aged 16 through 21 who are experiencing homelessness. The services consist of: (1) providing shelter (i.e., group homes, maternity group homes, host family homes, and supervised apartments); (2) a service coordination plan that refers youths experiencing homelessness to social services, law enforcement, educational services, vocational training, child welfare, legal services, affordable child care, or child education programs; and (3) a transitional living plan that provides basic life skills, money management, job attainment skills, counseling, mental and physical health care, other youth development services, and after-care resources to support the transition from supervised participation to independent living. In fiscal year (FY) 2022, ACF provided more than $53 million to fund 225 TLP awards to 175 grant recipients across the United States. We will determine whether selected TLP grant recipients provided services to youths experiencing homelessness according to Federal requirements.
