Date: February 27, 2015


Section 1 (256K.45, Subd. 1a) amends the Homeless Youth Act by modifying the definition of the terms “homeless youth” and "youth at risk of homelessness" by changing eligibility from youth 21 years of age or younger, to youth 24 years of age or younger.  This is consistent with the federal Runaway and Homeless Youth Act.
