    This competitive grant is available to all districts in Montana. To be eligible to submit an application for this grant, a district must meet one of the following criteria:

    • the district must have identified at least 50 students experiencing homelessness during the previous school year, or
    • at least 10% of the district's total enrollment has been identified as experiencing homelessness during the previous school year (Ex. 100 students enrolled, 10 identified as experiencing homelessness).

    Homeless education funds are used to ensure that students experiencing homelessness have the same opportunity to succeed as their stably housed peers.

    Supports may include school supplies, clothing/shoes needed to fully participate in PE or recess, fees for dual enrollment and college entrance exams, rental fees for instruments, or other items necessary for equal access to all academic and extra-curricular offerings. Funds may also be used to pay for the salary of the homeless liaison, tutoring staff, social workers, or school counselors who are providing supplemental supports to students identified as homeless.

    Grant applications MUST be submitted by September 10, 2020. For more information or questions, contact Heather Denny at or 406-444-2036.
