Funding for schools to support homeless students needed in coronavirus relief

A new bipartisan proposal in front of the U.S. Senate proposes to allocate $1 billion through the McKinney-Vento Act to support additional services for homeless students. Funds would hire caseworkers to identify students and families in need, help meet basic needs, and support efforts to keep vulnerable students in schools. Housing advocates emphasize anticipated increases in the number of homeless students once eviction moratoriums expire and the pandemic recovery unevenly progresses. #covid-19 #education #housing
