Complete your Application for Educational Benefits
Many families are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. An application for educational benefits must be completed each year to qualify.
Families may also be eligible for reduced fees for transportation, testing, field trips, athletics and other school fees. Complete the meal benefits application and check the box to share for other school benefits. Only one application is required for all children in the same household who attend Bloomington Public Schools.
If you received a letter from the school saying that your children were automatically approved (directly certified) for free meals for the 2020-2021 school year because someone in your household participates in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), then you do not need to submit an application.
Your US citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for free or reduced price benefits.
