Homeless and Displaced Students - Do You Need Assistance?
If your family lives in any of the following situations, your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act:
- In a shelter
- In a motel or campground due to the lack of an alternative adequate accommodation
- In a car, park, abandoned building, or bus or train station
- Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship
If you believe your children may be eligible, see the information on this page, or contact the local liaison to find out what services and supports may be available. There also may be supports available for your preschool-age children.
