Updated Guidance for Homeless Children in the School Nutrition Programs

Please advise your state agencies that a January 2002 amendment to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11431 et seq.) clarified the definition of homeless children and youth. Another provision of the statute requires each school district to designate a local educational agency liaison for homeless children and youths. Many districts already have designated a liaison. Other districts may appoint an individual to act as the liaison until one is designated.
