How can Social Services Block Grants help FYSB grantees meet the needs of youth and families?

General Material

Social Services Block Grants (SSBG) provide flexible funding (approximately $1.7 Billion annually) to serve residents through locally relevant social services. This webinar provides information about how SSBG grants may support youth and families served by Runaway and Homeless Youth, Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, or Family Violence Prevention and Services Programs.

SSBG grants support a range of services in communities throughout the country under five broad goals:

  • Economic self-support
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Preventing or remedying neglect, abuse, or exploitation of children and adults
  • Providing for community-based care, home-based care, or less intensive care
  • Institutional care

States and Territories develop annual SSBG plans to prioritize services and fund a variety of initiatives for children and adults. Access the webinar recording and related materials below to learn how you can become involved in identifying state priorities for the youth and families that you serve.
