CHARLESTON, West Virginia — West Virginia residents can begin applying for school clothing vouchers for eligible children on July 1.

The Department of Health and Human Resources say the vouchers can be used toward the purchase of school clothing. Families who sew clothing for their children can use the vouchers to buy piece goods.

Each eligible child will receive a $200 voucher.

Children in foster care will automatically receive the vouchers, along with children in families who currently receive cash assistance from WV WORKS.

Other families could be eligible if they meet income guidelines.

July 31 is the deadline to submit applications. Families must use the vouchers at participating stores by Oct. 31.
