Student homelessness is on the rise dramatically across rural America. An estimated 1.4 million students are homeless across the country—a 3% increase nationwide since the 2013-14 school year. But during that same time, student homelessness grew by 11% in rural communities. 

ICPH explores this side of the national homelessness crisis in a new report,  Student Homelessness in Rural America . In this latest analysis, ICPH examines data from the U.S. Department of Education to gain a deeper understanding of the scope of rural student homelessness and what its rapid growth means for America’s rural communities.
