McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, reauthorized in January 2002 by the Title X Part C, or the No Child Left Behind Act, ensures the educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. 

 

Homelessness is defined as:

  • having a lack of fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes
  • children and youth who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reasons;
  • children or youth living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster care placement;
  • children or youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
  • children or youth living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.
