Pandemic Electronic Benefits Program
The Families First CoronaVirus Act allows states to issue Food Assistance benefits to households with children in Pre-K through 12th grade who lost access to Free and Reduced Price School Meals due to pandemic-related school closures in Spring 2020. Any child who was an enrolled Pre-K through 12th grade student, during the 2019-2020 school year, in either a public school or non-public school that participates in the National School Lunch Program and received Free and Reduced Price School Meals as of March 16, 2020 is eligible.
If your child received free or reduced lunch at Hillcrest Academy as of March 16, 2020, you will receive this benefit. There is no need to apply for this aid.
