Support Higher Education Access for Homeless and Foster Youth
Postsecondary attainment is increasingly necessary to move out of poverty and homelessness and live a healthy, productive life. Yet youth experiencing homelessness face barriers in transitioning from secondary to postsecondary education, as well as barriers to financial aid, college retention, and college completion.
The Helping Foster and Homeless Youth Achieve Act helps eliminate barriers to higher education by waiving application fees to federally funded institutions of higher education for homeless and foster youth.
