Higher Education Poster

image of higher education poster
This 8½ x 11 color poster, based on the unaccompanied youth provisions of the College Cost Reduction and Access Act, alerts unaccompanied youth experiencing homelessness to contact the relevant authorities in order to receive a determination of independent student status on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The poster provides a place to add local contact information, and is appropriate for posting across high school and college campuses, in HUD-funded and RHYA-funded shelters, and in other community locations where youth experiencing homelessness on their own may gather.
