Guidance for NSLP Application or Alternative Form
This information provides local educational agencies (LEAs) with School Year 2021−22 guidance regarding the use of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) application or the alternative household income form to collect data used for funding allocations and Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer eligibility, while operating the Seamless Summer Feeding Option (SSO).
The California Department of Education (CDE), provided a letter that contains guidance and supplemental information about the collection of NSLP applications and alternative household income forms.
