W.Va. to Accept Applications for School Clothing Vouchers


West Virginia’s government 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 in June/

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