McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal law, which requires states to ensure that children who are experiencing homelessness have equal access to a free and appropriate education. The law mandates that states act to remove barriers that might prevent these children and youth from accessing educational resources. Minnesota has enacted additional laws to allow children who are homeless equal access to education.
