American Rescue Plan - Homeless Children and Youth II (ARP-HCY II)


Funding Description

ARP-HCY II funds are to help local educational agencies (LEAs) identify homeless children and youth, provide wraparound services that address the multiple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on homeless children and youth, and ensure that homeless children and youth are able to attend school and participate fully in school activities.
