The New ARP Homeless Funding: An Overview and Discussion of ED’s July 6 Announcement
Tuesday, July 27, 2pm ET
On July 6, the U.S Department of Education made available a brief application for states to apply for $600 million from the American Rescue Plan Act specifically to support the school identification, enrollment, participation, and success of children and youth experiencing homelessness. This is in addition to the $200 million released this spring. This webinar will review the timing, allocation, application, and uses of ARP Homeless funds. Which LEAs will receive funding, how much, and when? We’ll also highlight ideas and strategies for making the most of this historic opportunity to expand and improve systems to identify and support children and youth experiencing homelessness, and respond to the heightened needs and challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
