McKinney-Vento Act Information for Families Experiencing Homelessness

DPAC Families, we’d like to inform you that there is a program that provides support to families facing homelessness. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act allows our school to provide educational support and other resources to families experiencing homelessness. It is important to note that homelessness encompasses several categories including families that lost their housing and are living with other families or relatives due to economic hardship. It also includes families living in a motel, car, park, emergency or transitional shelter.

Please complete THIS SURVEY so we may determine whether or not your family qualifies for educational support and other resources through the McKinney-Vento Act.

Know Your Rights
Students who are experiencing homelessness are also granted special rights under the McKinney-Vento act. For more information please use the following links:

The DPAC McKinney-Vento Family Liaison is Alison McMullen. Please reach out to her for more information and support.
