All Preston County households with children enrolled in Preston County Schools are eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
How can I prove my child is approved for the free and reduced-price school lunch or school breakfast program, or my child attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) School?
If your child attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), school, when applying online select “Free and Reduced Price School Lunch or Breakfast Program” on the “Confirm You Qualify” page. You can then indicate that your child is enrolled at a CEP school by entering the name of the school and uploading documentation that demonstrates that your child is enrolled at that school.
The documentation must include:
- The student’s (benefit qualifying person's) name
- Name of the school or of the school district
- A date that coincides with the 2019-2020, 2020-2021, or 2021-2022 school year
Examples of acceptable documentation include a child’s report card or a letter from the school or school district indicating the child’s enrollment. Generic school notices that do not include the benefit qualifying person’s name would not be sufficient to enroll in the program based on the CEP.
If you need to talk to someone about your eligibility or application status, call the ACP Support Center at (877) 384-2575.
