Immigrant & Homeless: Information for School District Title III Programs and Community Agencies

Many immigrant children experiencing high mobility and poverty may be eligible for services under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. These services can help create a safe and welcoming environment for immigrant students and their parents who are experiencing homelessness. According to the McKinney-Vento Act, students who “lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence” are eligible for services designed to reduce academic barriers and have a positive impact on the educational outcomes of eligible students.
