National School Lunch Program Eligibility

Norwich Free Academy announced today its policy for determining eligibility of children who may receive free or reduced-price meals served under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP), or free milk served under the Special Milk Program (SMP).

Local school officials have adopted the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Income Eligibility Guidelines (IEGs) for family size and income criteria for determining eligibility.

The following income guidelines will be used in Connecticut from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 for determining eligibility of participants for free and reduced-price meals and free milk in the Child Nutrition Programs.
