Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California school districts and charter schools to provide equal access to education for individuals who are homeless. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to improve the education and academic achievement of homeless children and youth. For the purpose of this grant, local educational agencies (LEAs) are school districts and direct-funded charter schools that have enrolled 50 or more homeless students during the 2018-19 school year.

The intent of the grant is to facilitate the identification, enrollment, attendance, and success in school for homeless children and youth. In addition, the grant will help ensure homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as provided to all other children and youth. 

Some of the requirements under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act:

  1. Designate a liaison for homeless children and youth.
  2. Identify and enroll immediately, even if the homeless child does not have the proper enrollment papers or immunization records.
  3. Ensure access to all educational and support services, including transportation.
  4. Disseminate educational rights.
  5. Keep homeless children in the same school of origin.
