Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program (County Offices of Education)


Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

The purpose of this program is to facilitate the enrollment, attendance, and success in school of homeless children and youth, and ensure homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate, public education as provided to all other students. These funds can be used to facilitate coordination and collaboration among local educational agencies (LEAs), service providers, and community agencies. County offices of education (COEs) are being asked to build capacity among various stakeholders and connect them to resources.
