Please join John Burton Advocates for Youth for a web seminar on Thursday, September 6 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. to learn about the Homeless Emergency Assistance Program (HEAP) which will provide local jurisdictions with $500 M to address homelessness, of which at least 5% must be used to address youth homelessness.
