Ask your provider if they participate in the EBB Program, or use the online tool to find a participating company near you. Participating companies can help you apply through the National Verifier or through their company’s application process.
You will need to show proof that your child receives benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch or school breakfast program. You should have received a verification letter earlier in the school year. If you need an additional copy of the letter, please contact the school at (518) 465-4561, ext. 101.
