2024 Summer EBT Information from OTDA

Eligibility

To be automatically eligible for Summer EBT food benefits:

·         A child must receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and/or Temporary Assistance (cash) benefits, or be directly certified for free meals through Medicaid, OR

·         A child must be determined eligible for free/reduced price school meals by their school.

These children will receive benefits automatically and DO NOT need to apply. Most eligible children will receive their benefits this way. These families will receive a letter this summer letting them know that their child is eligible.

For those households that do need to apply, children may be eligible if they meet two criteria.

·         The child must attend a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), which our district does, AND

·         The household’s income must be at or below the income limits for eligibility for free/reduced price school meals (2024-2025 School Year Income Eligibility Guidelines)

If your household must apply to be considered for benefits, an online application (English and Spanish) will be available by July 1, 2024 here.

Meal Prices and Payment

FREE MEALS IN 23-24! We are pleased to announce that Northville Central School District has implemented a meal certification option to our schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  All students enrolled at Northville CSD are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge each day of the 2023-2024 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or complete a Free or Reduced Meal Application.

It is still important, however, for families who believe they may qualify for the Free and Reduced-Price Meals Program to submit a Household Income Eligibility Form to document their needs. For each learner who would otherwise qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast/lunch, schools receive additional dollars in funding.

***** Please click here to complete and submit the Household Income Eligibility Form prior to October 1st for the 2023-24 school year. *****

For questions regarding applications, please contact Susan Frank, Shared Food Services Specialist, susan.frank@neric.org, (518)464-5133.
