You can receive assistance through the KIT Program if you meet the Federal Government’s definition of “homeless”. A family is considered homeless if they lack fixed, regular, and adequate housing.
A student is considered in transition or homeless if he or she is:
- Sharing housing with family or friends due to loss of housing or economic hardship
- Staying in a shelter, hotel or motel, or campground
- Living in substandard housing (without electricity, water, heat, etc.)
- Living in places not designed for regular living accommodations (car, abandoned building, public place, etc.)
- Awaiting foster care placement or temporarily living in an institution
