Home / Emergency Funding and Benefits During the COVID-19 Pandemic

 

Hello Broughal Parents and Guardians,

I am reaching out today regarding a few opportunities for families to receive emergency funding & benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic.

First, if your child received Free or Reduced lunch while the school was open this year OR if your child became eligible for Free or Reduced price meals after schools closed, you are eligible to receive a one-time payment, via P-EBT, for up to $365 per child!

More details are available in the attached flier, however, it is MOST IMPORTANT to make sure that Broughal has your current mailing address.  If you moved after the start of the school year, please make sure we have your most up to date address!  Please either respond to this message with your child’s name, grade, and screenshots of 2 proofs of residence OR email Guidance Secretary, Janet DeJesus at jdejesus@basdschools.org

Secondly, the state of PA is offering one-time emergency payments for low-income families that are experiencing financial challenge due to the pandemic.  The grant is being offered on a first come, first served basis and applications will be accepted through June 12th or until all funds are expended, whichever comes first.  More information on this emergency funding can be found here:
Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions.
Thank you,
Alicia Creazzo
