    New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE)


    The McKinney-Vento Act's Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) program and Title I, Part A provide homeless students with protections and services to ensure they can enroll in and attend school, complete their high school education, and continue on to higher education which is their best hope of avoiding poverty and homelessness as adults. It is the intent of the McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth grant program (McKinney-Vento) to support state and federal efforts through the establishment of regional partnership projects that will:

    • provide leadership and technical assistance in this area to the schools within the region; and
    • coordinate and provide (when possible), supplemental academic programs and support services to homeless children and youth attending schools within the region.

    The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has established a three-year grant program which focuses on the provision of instructional services that are supplemental to the regular school program and on referral services to appropriate community-based organizations with the goal of enabling all homeless children and youth to meet challenging state content and student performance standards.
