SCHOOL CLOTHING VOUCHERS APPLICATIONS OPEN

West Virginia will begin accepting applications July 1 for school clothing vouchers for eligible children enrolled in the state’s schools.

Officials say families with school-aged children currently receiving WV WORKS cash assistance, as well as those in foster care, will automatically receive vouchers by mid-July.

Families who received vouchers in 2014 and currently receive Medicaid or SNAP benefits should have received an application in the mail.

Others may be eligible for school clothing vouchers, but the monthly income for a family of four may not exceed $2,021.
