The McKinney-Vento Act


The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is Title X, Part C, of the No Child Left Behind Act. This federal law ensures that children and youth experiencing homelessness have full and equal access to an appropriate public education and that they experience success in school.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines “homeless children and youth” as children and youth who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. It includes children and youth who are sharing the housing of others (also known as “doubling up”) due to loss of housing or economic hardship. These youth or children may be living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, campgrounds, cars, public spaces, or emergency or transitional shelters.
