Homeless Assistance Act Information

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Children’s Education Assistance Act passed in 1987 was designed to address the growing number of school-aged children who are considered homeless. The law requires that each school district removes barriers to the enrollment and retention of children in homeless situations. Students and their families may be entitled to funding by completing this form.

The term “homeless” is broadly defined include Identifying Factors for individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children and youth who are living in a wide variety of inadequate living situations such as motels, campgrounds, cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings , emergency or transitional shelters and shared housing due to the loss of housing, economic hardship or other similar reasons.

The McKinney-Vento Act also ensures rights and protections for “unaccompanied youth” who are defined as youth not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian.
