McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

  • The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal law that works to ensure educational stability for homeless youth.  The McKinney-Vento act allows homeless students to enroll in school and receive transportation.  The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence.”
