The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Division of Family Assistance is extending the school clothing allowance application period to August 10, for eligible children enrolled in WV schools.
This extension is due to program expansion to include families with children enrolled in public West Virginia Pre-Kindergarten programs or West Virginia Head Start that are four years old as of July 1, 2018. The age requirement for West Virginia Pre-Kindergarten was changed to July 1, 2018, as a result of the passage of WV Senate Bill 186 in February, 2017.
Each eligible child will receive a $200 voucher that may be used for the purchasing of appropriate school clothing or piece goods for families who sew clothing for their children. These vouchers must be used by October 31, 2018. A list of participating stores can be found here.
To learn more about eligibility guidelines or to apply, contact your local DHHR office, apply online here, or call 1-877-716-1212.
Verification of income for the month of July must be submitted with the application.
The application acceptance period extension to August 10 applies to all West Virginia families.
