You can help support law and system changes with us and our wider Youth Services Network (YSN) partners!

Please check out our 2021 legislative summary (YSN 2021 Legislative Session Summary) to learn about the many legislative wins which impact young people experiencing homelessness and/or involved in the Juvenile and Adult Criminal Justice Systems.

Highlights Include:

  • The Emergency Services Program (ESP), MN Statutes 256E.36 was increased by $12 million in FY 22-23.

  • $20 million for Homeless Prevention! This is new funding that came through Rep. Gomez and is coming through the Department of Revenue so needs to go to the counties who would then do an RFP/contract with providers.
