Open Call for Proposals: Mobilizing Data and Technology to Support the Prevention of Youth Homelessness

Deadline: December 7, 2020.

Making the Shift is soliciting proposals from researchers and community organizations for one-time grants that focus on the use of data and technology to: expand and enhance data infrastructure to harmonize and integrate data systems and platforms; identify and test analytical methods to improve evidence-based decision-making; and explore the role of new technologies to predict and prevent homelessness from occurring.

Applicants can choose from one of two research funding streams:

  • Developing a data infrastructure roadmap to support policy, operational, and research decision-making
  • Exploring opportunities to use data, technology, infrastructure, and new methods of data analysis to better understand and prevent youth homelessness

Applications are due by December 7, 2020 by 4 PM EST.
