Deadline extended to December 9, 2022 at noon.
The purpose of the End Student Housing Insecurity (ESHI) grants is to support institutions in implementing the Higher Education Housing and Opportunities Act. Institutions will designate Housing and Opportunities that are Useful for Students’ Excellence (HOUSE) liaisons and expand support services and resources available to “students experiencing homelessness” (“homeless students”) and “students in care” on their campuses. Consistent with Equity Strategy #1 in A Thriving Illinois, the proposed grant program would seek to address homelessness and housing insecurity in holistic and transformational ways so students can focus on completing their degrees. Priority will be given to proposals that foster innovation and collaboration across campus units, community organizations, and education systems to address the root causes of homelessness and support students in their transition to and through higher education.
