Grants averaging $65,000 to Kentucky local educational agencies and school districts for programs that enhance the academic success of homeless students. Funding is intended to support activities such as tutoring, evaluation, healthcare referrals, professional development, and remedial education services. The purpose of this program is to help facilitate the enrollment, attendance, and success of children and youth experiencing homelessness.
This competitive sub-grant may be used to provide temporary, special, and supplementary services to meet the unique needs of homeless children and youths. Applications must include activities that support homeless students’ needs, such as:
Districts must demonstrate coordination and collaboration among existing programs and services. LEAs must collaborate with at least one community-based organization, public agency, or other nonprofit organization in order to qualify for funding through this grant. In addition to collaboration with community partners, McKinney-Vento programs must collaborate with other education programs.
Services may be provided through programs on school grounds or at other facilities (e.g., shelters and nonprofit community social service centers). Where services are provided through programs on school grounds, such services also may be made available to children or youth who are determined by the local educational agency to be at risk of failing or dropping out of school, except that priority for such services shall be given to homeless children and homeless youth. To the maximum extent practical, services shall be provided through programs and mechanisms that integrate homeless individuals and non-homeless individuals. Activities undertaken must not isolate or stigmatize homeless children and youth.
