McKinney-Vento Assistance

Hudsonville Public Schools works collaboratively with the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District and the State of Michigan to support families experiencing housing insecurity. Under the federal McKinney-Vento Act of 2001, our district program strives to identify families experiencing housing insecurity and works diligently to eliminate barriers to education. We work closely with area shelters, housing providers, and community agencies to help ensure educational stability, support, and encouragement for students and families as they seek to secure permanent housing.
