Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Applications may be submitted for Middle Schools and High Schools only.

-The target size for each award under this program should serve a combined total of 2,000 to 4,000 students, teachers, and administrators per district (or administrative equivalent). Applications should not be submitted for significantly larger or smaller contributions.

-Contributions may be split among multiple schools within a single district (or administrative equivalent) as long as:
1) The upper threshold for the total number of students to be served is not exceeded
2) All students within each applicant school are eligible to receive service (i.e., partial school deployments serving a single grade level or group within a school will not be considered)

-Consortium applications (i.e., multiple school districts represented on a single application) will not be accepted. However, smaller school districts that are located in roughly the same geographic area that wish to collaborate with one another to reach the target award size may do so by submitting their own individual applications and indicating a desire to collaborate in their responses to the first narrative question on the application.

-An applicant school must either be eligible to receive Title I funding or be one in which more than 50% of enrolled students are eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program.
