Eligibility for free, publicly funded early childhood programs is based on factors such the child's age, household income
, and residency. Some applicants will be eligible for free programs, and some may only be eligible for tuition programs. All required documents must be submitted for eligibility to be verified. Students will not be able to receive a school placement and enroll until verification is complete.
Families only applying to tuition-based programs do not need to verify income. Families in a temporary living arrangement due to loss of housing or economic hardship (homeless) and children in foster care are considered categorically eligible and will be contacted by NOLA-PS during the verification process.
