Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District (FSUSD) is one of seventy-three California school districts awarded the Education for Homeless Children & Youth (EHCY) grant. Over a three-year funding cycle, FSUSD will receive a total of $147,000 to improve early identification, enrollment, attendance, and academic success of youth who are experiencing houselessness.
This grant will further support the district’s efforts to ensure students experiencing houselessness have equal access to the same educational opportunities as provided to all other students. In addition to academic support, the funds will bolster the social-emotional and mental health needs of students and families facing houselessness through targeted case management and holistic family support.
