Request to Endorse the Bipartisan Emergency Family Stabilization Act

In anticipation of the reintroduction of the Emergency Family Stabilization Act, National Network for Youth (NN4Y) is asking organizations to endorse this legislation to support children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness in the wake of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).  

About the Bipartisan Emergency Family Stabilization Act:

  • Creates a new emergency funding stream through the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide flexible funding for community-based organizations to meet the unique needs of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness (as defined by the education subtitle of the McKinney-Vento Act) in the wake of the coronavirus. 
  • Local agencies that currently receive ACF grants or have experience in serving children, families, and unaccompanied youth experiencing homelessness would be eligible to receive funds, including community-based, faith-based, tribal, and culturally-specific organizations and local educational agencies.
  • Special consideration is given to pregnant women, pregnant and parenting youth, children under age 6, children with disabilities, families experiencing domestic violence, survivors of sexual assault or human trafficking, historically marginalized and underserved communities of color, and families and youth in rural areas.
  • Funds may be used for a wide range of housing, health, education, employment, training, and safety-related activities.
