Unaccompanied homeless youth face unique barriers in accessing financial aid. This webinar will provide homeless education professionals, higher education professionals, and community-based organizations with information and tools to assist homeless youth to apply for Federal Student Aid. Presenters from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education and the Office of Federal Student Aid will discuss financial aid policies and practices for homeless youth. Presenters from SchoolHouse Connection will provide a brief background on unaccompanied homeless youth, and review requirements in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that support the transition to post-secondary education.
