Purpose: It is the intent of Stewart B. McKinney-Vento Act for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth program to ensure that homeless children and youth have equal access to a free, appropriate public education, and to be able to enroll in, and attend school. The Stewart B. McKinney-Vento grant program funds are to provide support services designed to assure school success. The New Jersey Department of Education has established a three-year grant program which focuses on the provision of instructional services that are supplemental to the regular school program and on referrals to appropriate community-based organizations to enable all homeless children and youth to meet challenging state content and student performance standards. This Notice of Grant Opportunity (NGO) for the final of this three-year program is to assist partnerships of educational agencies and community-based organizations in New Jersey in providing educational programs and services for homeless children and youth residing in the partnership’s project area. The third grant cycle begins September 1, 2008 and ends August 31, 2009.
