Free meals for all Troy students

Troy City School District is participating in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) which allows all students to receive meals and milk at no charge – regardless of household income.

Parents are asked to complete the Household Income Eligibility Form each year. This form also helps to determine eligibility for ADDITIONAL state and federal programs that may benefit your child. Please return this form to your building principal.

Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households up to $30/month (or $75/month for households living on Tribal lands) toward their internet bills, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. 

All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. 

Households are also independently eligible if:

(1) their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or

(2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.

Families can check their eligibility, sign up, and find fully covered plans at GetInternet.gov(link is external) (mobile-accessible and available in Spanish) or by calling 877-384-2575.
