Families in Transition
This program provides assistance to families meeting criteria for the McKinney-Vento Act implemented to ensure all students the right to an education regardless of their living situation.
The term “homeless children and youth” is defined as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children and youth who are:
- sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing or economic hardship
- living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, campgrounds, or similar settings
- living in emergency or transitional housing
- living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, or substandard housing
