The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students. The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.”
You can apply for McKinney-Vento Assistance by first filling out a McKinney-Vento Form (above) and submitting it to your school’s main office. Once that is complete, you can use our McKinney-Vento Request Form. The Request form can only be fulfilled if the previous form has first been submitted.
