Please post here a copy of the Homeless Report prepared by staff at Texas State University.
Posted.

Please ensure that someone explains "Martin V Boise" before it is referenced during the presentation.

Same for McKinney-Vento students.

Please remind us of the funding we have set, using federal dollars and city dollars, to assist those experiencing homelessness.

Response provided by Greg Carr, Director of Neighborhood Enhancement:
Please ensure that someone explains "Martin V Boise" before it is referenced during the presentation.
The Martin V Boise ruling held that cities cannot enforce anti-camping ordinances if they do not have enough homeless shelter beds available for their homeless population.

Same for McKinney-Vento students.
Here is a link to the SMCISD page explaining McKinney-Vento https://www.smcisd.net/Page/2019

Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, reauthorized by Title X, Part C, of the No Child Left Behind Act, ensures educational rights and protection for children and youth experiencing homelessness. Homelessness is a lack of permanent housing resulting from extreme poverty, or, in the case of an unaccompanied youth, the lack of a safe and stable living environment.

The term “homeless children and youth”—

(A) Means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence …; and

(B) Includes—


(i) children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster care placement;

(ii) children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings …

(iii) children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and

(iv) migratory children who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described in clauses (i) through (iii).

Please remind us of the funding we have set, using federal dollars and city dollars, to assist those experiencing homelessness.
