mckinney-vento homeless assistance act

The purpose of the Federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is to:

  • define children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence as homeless.
  • ¬†ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth.
The Charter Institute at Erskine is required to set-aside funding under Title I to assist with the students in need under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistant Act. If your school identifies students in need, please reach out to our office for funding assistance.
