The American Rescue Plan includes billions of dollars for the housing and education needs of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness through the Treasury Department’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program and the Education Department’s Homeless Children and Youth (ARP-HCY) and Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP-ESSER) funds. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to significantly reduce homelessness in some communities and end it in others.
