Insights Into Homelessness and Title IV Aid

Youth experiencing homelessness face unique barriers to postsecondary education, including accessing financial aid. The FAFSA Simplification Act aims to remove many of these barriers, and includes significant changes to financial aid processes and requirements for homeless and foster youth. This session will review these new policies and share strategies for implementing them, including how to build partnerships with K-12 educators and homeless services.
