The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal education law originally passed in 1987 and reauthorized under Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015. It works hand-in-hand with Title I Part A legislation and other federal programs, such as the National School Lunch Program. This law is designed to support students experiencing homelessness to ensure identification, school enrollment and stability, support for academic success, and student-centered decision-making.
