Family Income Inquiry Form

All NYC public school students can enjoy free breakfast and lunch at school all year. You do not need to apply for your child to receive meals. However, we do ask families to complete the Family Income Inquiry Form, which helps our schools receive money for the programs. If you complete the form, you may be eligible for fee waivers when applying for college, AP exam fees, etc. This information regarding fee waivers can be obtained by our college office staff.

Please complete the Family Income Inquiry Form as soon as possible starting Tuesday, July 2, 2019, for the 2019 – 20 school year. Have a safe and fun summer. See you back in September.
