McKinney-Vento Homeless Support/ Foster Care Supports

McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act

The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children and youths as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.

The term ‘awaiting foster care placement' has been removed from the definition of 'homeless' in McKinney-Vento.
