Free Webinar: Federal Legislation to Promote Access and Success in Higher Education for Youth in Foster Care and Experiencing Homelessness – Wednesday, September 27 at 4:00-5:00 pm ET

Two important pieces of legislation have been introduced in Congress to promote higher education success for youth experiencing homelessness and youth in foster care, “Higher Education Access and Success for Homeless and Foster Youth Act” and “Fostering Success in Higher Education Act.” These bills seek to address barriers to higher education access and success by streamlining access to existing financial aid, enhancing assistance and support for retention and completion, and improving collaboration, outreach, and data collecting.

During the webinar information will be provided on the content of both bills, the time line for introduction, and opportunities for support and advocacy.  There will also be a chance to hear from Congressional staff about the bills as well as an opportunity for questions. Register. Read more and take action.
