McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Program

What is the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Program?


The McKinney-Vento program is federally funded and provides supplemental instructional and support services for homeless children and youth, with the goal of enabling them to meet the same rigorous standards set for all children, despite the challenges encountered as a result of not having a permanent living situation.  Children and youth who are currently without a fixed, regular or adequate night-time residence may qualify for program services. Qualifying situations may include children residing in:

  • Temporary shelters, including domestic violence and transitional living shelters

  • Hotels and motels

  • “Double-up” housing, where one family is living with another due to loss of housing stemming from financial hardship

  • Other public or private places not designed for or ordinarily used as regular sleeping accommodation, such as abandoned buildings, cars, vans, camping areas etc.

  • Transitional housing for families

  • Other special situations


Supplemental Services may Include:

  • Tutoring

  • Advocacy

  • School Supplies

  • Supplemental Transportation

  • Counseling

  • Awareness Sessions

  • Parent Activities

  • Health Services
