ARP Homeless Children Youth II grant funds available

Superintendents and homeless liaisons should have received an email from Dawn Smith at DOE on Oct. 29, asking them to complete an ARP HCY II (American Rescue Plan Homeless Children Youth II) survey to indicate whether their district is interested in receiving these formula grant funds.

The purpose of this federal formula grant is to help local education agencies (LEAs) identify homeless children and youth, provide wraparound services, and ensure that these youngsters are able to attend school and participate fully in school activities. Grants may not be less than $5,000; however, LEAs may combine as a consortium in order to generate at least $5,000 under the formula. See this guidance document for more information; potential allocations are posted here. Questions? Contact Dawn L. Smith at 605-773-2535.
