3. My Child’s Application Was Approved Last Year. Do I Need To Fill Out A New One?
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.
 
4. 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 eligible for free and reduced-price meals if the household income drops below the income limit.

List the amount normally received. If a household member lost a job or had hours/wages reduced, use current income.
 
6. We Are in The Military. Do We Report Our Income Differently?
Basic pay and cash bonuses must be reported as income. Any cash value allowances for off-base housing, food, or clothing, or Family Subsistence Supplemental Allowance payments count as income. If housing is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, do not include the housing allowance as income. Any additional combat pay resulting from deployment is excluded from income.
 
7. May I Apply If Someone in My Household Is Not a U.S. Citizen?
Yes. You, your children, or other household members do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply for free or reduced-price meals.
 
8. Will Application Information Be Checked?
Yes. We may also ask you to send written proof of the reported household income.
