Last updated Oct, 19 2022

This is a John Burton Advocates for Youth “how-to” webinar to assist those working with homeless youth to successfully complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA). The webinar reviews the 2023-2024 FAFSA and CADAA, page by page, including detailed instructions on how eligible students experiencing homelessness can qualify as independent students for the purposes of maximizing financial aid. Presenters will also provide information on key steps to take after the FAFSA or CADAA is completed, such as creating a WebGrants account.
