McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

ACS Homeless Education Program

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is the primary piece of federal legislation dealing with the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness. Homelessness is legally defined as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This may include:

  1. Living with friends, relatives, or someone else because they lost their home or cannot afford a home;

  2. Staying in a hotel or motel;

  3. Living in an emergency or transitional shelter, a domestic violence shelter, runaway, or homeless shelter;

  4. Living in substandard housing;

  5. Living in a car, park, public place, abandoned building, bus or train station, campground, or inadequate trailer;

  6. Awaiting placement in foster care or abandoned in a hospital;

  7. Youth living on their own, even if their families want them to come home.
