Register for Free and Reduced Benefits Program

Dear D49 Families,

To best serve the entire D49 family in our current and rapidly changing reality, we strongly encourage all who qualify or may qualify for the Free and Reduced Benefits Program to apply or reapply by Monday, Sept. 28. 

It is extremely important that all qualifying families complete the application process, regardless of the availability of meals at no cost for D49 families. This will ensure families have access to all the benefits provided, which support programs at your student’s schools and includes individual assistance for school and transportation fees. We encourage families to apply even if they have been denied in the past, and especially if their financial situation has changed in recent months. 

Please Note: After Monday, Sept. 28, all families who have not reapplied for the 2020-21 school year will be removed from the benefit program.

Families who are new to the program can register and apply, and qualifying families may reapply today, by clicking this link to PaySchools Central 

We thank you for your trust, and we are standing by in support as we walk together through this challenging period. Please email questions to Monica Deines-Henderson
