This Federal Law ensures the immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. The law provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting school programs that serve homeless students. The specific purpose of the law is to protect homeless children defined as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate night time residence”.
To implement the ACT, States must designate a statewide homeless coordinator to review policies and create procedures, including dispute resolution procedures, to ensure that school staff are aware of their rights, to provide public notice to homeless families ( at shelters and at school) and to facilitate access to school and transportation services.
