Each applicant must demonstrate financial need and make a purchase at least 120 days prior to the application deadline. All eligible applicants for an application period are then randomly assigned a queue number, which is used to determine their place on the wait list.
Previous awardees must wait one year after the end of their award period before reapplying. This means that someone selected in this round that ends in December (June) would have to wait until November (May) of the following year to reapply.
We use federal poverty standards as a guide, but there are no strict cut-offs. We look at the totality of evidence to help make this determination.
This totality includes tax returns and proof of participation in a need-based government program (i.e., SNAP or Medicaid)
If you are not part of a need-based program, please provide other forms of proof and an explanation of how the documentation demonstrates proof of financial need.
