Extension of Eligibility for Free Meals

SFAs may extend free meal benefits to all children living in the same household as a child receiving SNAP, TANF or FDPIR benefits. Extension can also be provided to other household members of a student who was deemed Medicaid through the Direct Certification Matching Process (DCMP). School enrollment records of children living at the same address must be kept to document eligibility.
