SUBJECT:  2011-2012 Homeless Children and Youth Grant Application Workshop

ListServe Message Date:  April 11, 2011

The Grants and Resources’ Section will conduct a workshop to discuss the 2011-2012 Homeless Children and Youth Grant Application which is available at http://www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/discretionarygrants/homeless/ (under Grant Information).  School Districts with 20 or more identified homeless students are eligible to apply for this homeless grant.

The Homeless Application workshop will be held on Friday, April 22, 2011 from 9:30 a.m. till 12:00 p.m. at the Jefferson State Office Building, 205 Jefferson Street, Jefferson City, MO.  The workshop will be in the First Floor Conference Room, which is located down the hallway past the elevators.  Parking is available in the public parking garage on the southeast corner of Capital Avenue and Madison Street (one block east of the Jefferson State Office Building).  The cost to park in the garage is prorated per hour, with the maximum charge of $6.00 to park all day. 

The purpose of this meeting is to provide current information which is critical to the completion of the application and the effective implementation of this program.  Because the grant application and rubrics have undergone revisions, it is important that the person(s) involved in the grant planning and application process attend this meeting.

Topics to be discussed include the administrative manual, the application process, and the 2011-2012 grant timeline.  You will also be given the opportunity to ask questions and address issues and concerns you may have about the completion of the Homeless Children and Youth Grant Application.  The postmark deadline for the Homeless Children and Youth Grant Application will be Thursday, May 26, 2011.
