The Education for Homeless Children and Youth program was enacted in 1987 as Title VII Subtitle B of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. More recently, the legislation of the NCLB Behind Act of 2001 reauthorized the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act's Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) program. The intent of this legislation is to ensure that all children and youth impacted by the loss of fixed, regular and adequate housing receive a quality education.
This Request for Proposals (RFP) has been issued for the purpose of soliciting proposals from local education agencies (districts) for the development and/or continuation of programs which meet the needs of homeless children and youth and the requirements of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (MV Act). Three funding tiers are available. Grants will be awarded to local education agencies that meet the requirements of the MV Act and the specifications outlined in the RFP. A non-binding intent to apply notification is required by April 5, 2013.
McKinney-Vento Act 2001 - Education for Homeless Children and Youth
Through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act of 2001, this program provides technical assistance and competitive funds for districts to provide supplemental services for children whose families are homeless.
All NH Districts must comply with the local education agency (LEA) requirements of the McKinney-Vento Act, whether or not they receive McKinny-Vento sub-grant funds.
