The Stewart B. McKinney Assistance Act of 1994 is the primary federal legislation that directly addresses the education of homeless children and youth. The McKinney Act is important in educating homeless children.

Should a student/family become homeless, as defined by the following criteria listed below, they should immediately notify their campus homeless liaison. The campus homeless liaison will provide the proper form(s) for documenting their new status and help as needed.
