National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

[Students eating lunch]

Direct certification increased the number of children certified for free meals by about 400,000 last year in the United States. The Wyoming Department of Education in partnership with the Department of Family Services is providing the names of the students that are eligible for Direct Certification through SNAP and Foster Child Eligibility.

Children's families who are directly certified do not have to complete income eligibility applications. Direct certification was designed primarily to improve NSLP access and integrity and also streamline administrative processes. It is our goal in Wyoming to directly certify all of the children listed on this website that are attending a Wyoming district or private school.

If you have any questions about the system please call or email Tamra Jackson at 307-777-6263, No question is too small. Thanks for all you do each and every day for the children of Wyoming.
