Statutes and Guidance

Legislation can serve many purposes, including regulating, authorizing, sanctioning, prohibiting, appropriating funds, and more. In the field of homeless education, federal and state statutes establish the responsibilities and requirements of public agencies — including U.S. public schools and the homeless response system — related to addressing the needs of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness.

Regulations are the means by which federal and state agencies implement and enforce legislation. Guidance or other policy statements further clarify how a federal or state agency envisions the implementation of statutes and programs it oversees or administers.
