Grants of up to $10,000 to South Carolina local education agencies for programs that ensure that homeless youth and children are able to access public education. Funding is intended to remove barriers preventing these children and youth from attaining the same education and academic achievements as their peers.

The purpose of this subgrant opportunity is to improve the identification, enrollment, attendance, and success in school of homeless children and youth. LEAs will use funds to focus on enhanced identification and delivery of services to homeless children and youth by establishing policies and procedures, developing communication tools and resources, and collaborating and coordinating services and training on best practices with internal and external agencies and organizations. 

Homeless children and youths should have access to educational and other services that they need to enable them to meet the same challenging state student academic achievement standards to which all students are held. In addition, homeless students may not be separated from the mainstream school environment based on their housing status.

For a list of allowable activities, see pp. 5-6 of the Application Instructions in Supporting Documents below.
