McKinney-Vento Program

Washington receives funding each year from the U.S. Department of Education and the Washington State Legislature to support the education of homeless students in school programs.  Funding is distributed to LEAs through a competitive grant process.

*Children and youth living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to a lack of alternative accommodations 
*Children and youth sharing housing due to loss of housing, economic hardship or a similar reason.
*Children and youth living in emergency or transitional shelter.
*Children and youth abandoned in hospitals.
*Children and youth whose primary nighttime residence is not ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation (e.g. park benches)
*Children and youth living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings.
*Migratory children and youth living in any of the above situations.
