Application forms are available at the school’s website and at your child’s school. Applications can be submitted at any
time during the school year. If a household member becomes unemployed or the household size or income changes during
the school year, parents are encouraged to contact the school so that all children receive the proper benefits. For the school
officials to determine eligibility, the household must provide the following information listed on the application: names of all
household members; household income received by each household member; type of income; frequency of income such as
weekly, every two weeks, twice a month or monthly; and the signature and last four digits of the social security number of an
adult household member certifying that the information provided is correct. The information provided by parents on the application will be kept confidential and will be used only for determining eligibility.
Foster children, Head Start enrollees, homeless, migrant and runaway children, as defined in 7 CFR 245.2, are categorically eligible for free meals or free milk. Households receiving assistance under NJ SNAP or Temporary Assistance
for
Needy Families (TANF) for their children will be notified of their eligibility for free benefits unless the household notifies the
school that it chooses to decline benefits. Households receiving assistance under NJ SNAP or TANF should only submit an
application if they are not notified of their eligibility by a specified date determined by the school. Households with children
that are certified participants in SNAP or TANF may submit school meal applications for their children using the abbreviated
information as indicated on the school meal application and instructions. WIC participants may also be eligible for Free and
Reduced Price meals. Parents/guardians should contact their child’s school for more information.
The school will advise parents of their child’s eligibility within 10 working days of receipt of the application. Any parent
dissatisfied with the eligibility determination may contact the school to request an informal conference or may appeal the decision by requesting a formal hearing.
For up to 30 operating days into the new school year (or until a new eligibility determination is made, whichever comes
first) an individual child’s free or reduced price eligibility status from the previous year will continue within the same LEA.
In addition, when children move to a new LEA, either at the beginning of the new school year or during the summer months,
the new LEA is encouraged to use the former LEA’s eligibility determination from the previous school year and carryover the
child’s eligibility status.
Once determinations are completed, school officials are required to verify three percent of the approved free and reduced
price applications on file. For additional information, contact your child’s school.

prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil
rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.
Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g. Braille, large
print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits.
Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at
(800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
