Santa Clara County will soon launch a pilot program to bring financial support to unhoused high school seniors after the county's Board of Supervisors unanimously approved it Tuesday. From April to August 2023, the program will send out unconditional payments of $1,000 a month to homeless students in their final year of high school in an effort to ease their transition into higher education or work opportunities.
