<h1>The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Division of Family Assistance began accepting applications for school clothing vouchers on Monday, July 3, for eligible children enrolled in West Virginia schools.<\/h1>\r\n\u201cChildren should begin their new school year with confidence and the school clothing program affords eligible West Virginia children that opportunity,\u201d said Linda Watts, acting commissioner of the Bureau for Children and Families.\r\n\r\nFamilies with school-aged children currently receiving WV WORKS cash assistance, as well as those in foster care, will automatically receive school clothing vouchers for each school-age child in the home by mid-July 2017.\r\n\r\nFamilies who received school clothing vouchers in 2016 and currently receive Medicaid or SNAP benefits from DHHR should have received an application by mail in June. Mailing address updates should be made to the Customer Services Center at 1-877-716-1212 or online at www.wvinroads.org to ensure prompt delivery of these vouchers.\r\n\r\nOthers may be eligible for school clothing vouchers, but the monthly income for a family of four may not exceed $2,050.\r\n\r\nEach eligible child will receive a $200 voucher that may be used toward the purchase of appropriate school clothing or piece goods for families who sew clothing for their children.
