McKinney-Vento Act Information for Families Experiencing Homelessness

Are You Experiencing Homelessness?

DPNY 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 schools 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.

If this applies to your family, please reach out to the DPNY McKinney-Vento Family Liaison so we can provide educational support and other resources for your scholar and your family.

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 DPNY McKinney-Vento Family Liaison is Danielle Alicastro. Please reach out to her for more information and support.
