The enacted FY2024 State Budget included an additional $134.6M to expand access to free school meals through the new Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) State Subsidy. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a federal option that allows high-poverty schools to offer free meals to all students. The CEP State Subsidy ensures all CEP meals are reimbursed at the โ€œfree rate.” This new state funding will allow all New York schools who are eligible for CEP to provide free meals to all students while alleviating the financial burden on schools.

In order to receive this new funding, schools must be enrolled in CEP in the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. Eligible, but unenrolled schools must be approved to participate in CEP by the State Education Department (SED).
Applications for CEP are due June 30, 2023
