ARP-HCY Monitoring and Use of Funds Webinar (February 24, 2022) In this webinar, the ARP-HCY program office provided information on its monitoring plan for EHCY and ARP-HCY in fiscal year 2022. The presentation went over the SEA self-assessment that States will submit when they are monitored, with a focus on new ARP-HCY questions. The program office also shared information on ARP-HCY use of funds questions and provided advice on how to assess whether a proposed use of funds is allowable.
Use of Funds Tip Sheet: Both NCHE and the Department frequently are asked about whether a proposed use of funds is allowable and the answer is often that “it depends” on whether it can be considered reasonable and necessary and what other services are provided to all students or available in the district or community for students experiencing homelessness. It is a fact-specific, local determination and this tip sheet discusses six decision points in making that determination.
