Funding Services for Students Experiencing Homelessness
To ensure that students experiencing homelessness have access to necessary educational services, many local education agencies (LEAs) may utilize funding to provide educational supports for youth experiencing homelessness.
Funding Services for Students Experiencing Homelessness in Ohio’s Schools
- Title I, Part A Funding to Support Students Experiencing Homelessness may be used to support educational services for students experiencing homelessness. Students experiencing homelessness are eligible for Title I services, even if they are attending a building that is not Title I eligible. Funds can be made available in Title I by allocating funds on the Title I set-aside page in the Title I funding application.
- Disadvantaged Pupil Impact Aid Fund and Student Wellness Fund can support programs geared toward homeless youth (including paying the salary of a homeless education liaison) and those involved in the child welfare system; mental and physical health care services; prevention education programs; wraparound services; mentoring and after-school programs; enhanced safety and security measures; and improved family and community resource and engagement services.
Education for Homeless Children and Youth McKinney-Vento Subgrant is a competitive grant opportunity for eligible districts and community schools to create additional programs, supports and services for students experiencing homelessness. Applications will be available in Spring 2024 for the next three-year cycle of this subgrant.
Emergency Relief Funding provided additional resources to schools and districts serving students experiencing homelessness using funding available as a result of the pandemic.
