    Title: New Runaway and Homeless Youth Management Information System 
(NEORHYMIS).
    OMB No.: 0970-0123.
    Description: The Runaway and Homeless Youth Act, as amended by 
Public Law 106-71 (42 U.S.C. 5701 et seq.), mandates that the 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) report regularly to 
Congress on the status of HHS-funded programs serving runaway and 
homeless youth. Such reporting is similarly mandated by the Government 
Performance and Results Act. Organizations funded under the Runaway and 
Homeless Youth program are required by statute (42 U.S.C. 5712, 42 
U.S.C. 5714-2) to meet certain data collection and reporting 
requirements. These requirements include maintenance of client 
statistical records on the number and the characteristics of the 
runaway and homeless youth, and youth at risk of family separation, who 
participate in the project, and the services provided to such youth by 
the project.
