The application deadline for school clothing vouchers in West Virginia has been extended to Aug. 10.
The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Division of Family Assistance made the announcement in a news release Tuesday.
The extension is due to program expansion that now includes families and children enrolled in public pre-K programs or West Virginia Head Start and who have turned 4 years old by Jul. 1.
The age requirement for enrollment in public West Virginia pre-K changed to July 1, 2018, as a result of the passage of Senate Bill 186 during the regular 2017 state Legislature session.
Each eligible child will receive a $200 voucher that can be used for school clothing or goods for families who sew their children’s clothes.
DHHR says the vouchers must be used by Oct. 31.
