Title IX, Part A - Education for Homeless Children and Youth

Published: 5/17/2018 11:45 AM

Title IX, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reauthorized the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act in December 2015.  This federal legislation has supported homeless youth for the past thirty years by promoting educational success for students who are experiencing homelessness.

​Subtitle VII-B McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

McKinney-Vento funds may be used for college applications, tests and exams, clothing, tutoring, supplemental services, enrichment services, evaluation of strengths and needs of homeless children, professional development, provision of referral services for medical, dental, mental, and other health services, transportation cost (access to academic and extra-curricular), programs to retain homeless children in public schools, mentoring, homework assistance, and costs for obtaining records, education and training to parents about rights and resources.

Requirements regarding homeless students apply to all districts, regardless of whether the district receives a McKinney-Vento Homeless grant.
