- An area eligible site is one that is located in the attendance area of a school in which at least 50% of the enrolled students have been determined as eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Area eligible sites are reimbursed at the free rate for snacks served regardless of each individual child’s eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals.
- Non-Area Eligible
- Non-area eligible sites will be reimbursed at the free, reduced-price or paid rate, depending on each child’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals.
For current sponsors, free and reduced-price data is maintained by ADE for each site based on March of the preceding school year’s data to determine whether the site is area eligible.
The reimbursement rates are adjusted annually. For the most recent list of reimbursement rates visit USDA’s Afterschool Snack website Step2-1.pdf.
