Frequently Asked Questions
1. My student's application was approved last year. Do I need to fill out a new one for this year?
Yes. An application is only good for that school year and for the first few days of this school year. Send in a new application unless the school has told you that your child is eligible for the new school year.
2. If I don't qualify now, may I apply later?
Yes. Apply at any time during the school year. A child with a parent or guardian who becomes unemployed may become eligble for free and reduced-price meals if the household income drops below the income limit.
3. What if my income amount is not always the same?
List the amount normally received. If a household member lost a job or had hours/wages reduced, use current income.
