This model is called the One-Stop Youth Services Demonstration Model. Grants will be given in two categories: Category A: Large Areas and Category B: Small to Medium-Sized Areas. The model is based upon new research. Applicants can only apply under one of the two categories which must be clearly identified on the face sheet of the application.
