2024 Summer EBT Nonpublic NSLP School Guidance

If your school is not an approved 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program School Food Authority (SFA) or Recipient Agency (RA) participating with an approved SFA there is nothing you need to do because this collection is only for religious or independent schools who are approved for the 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program. 

 

If your Local Education Agency is an approved 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program School (SFA), you MUST complete the Summer 2024 EBT for Religious and Independent NSLP Approved Schools – ONLY 2023-2024 Form in the IDEx application on your NYSED Business Application Portal. To do so, follow the directions from the guidance document: IDEx National School Lunch Program Guidance.

 

If your Local Education Agency is a Recipient Agency (RA) participating with an approved 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program SFA, you must work with your SFA to provide this information to them to submit on your behalf. An approved SFA is the only entity who can apply, complete, and submit information for an RA.

 

If you are unsure of you school's approval status for the 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program, all of the following must apply:

 

1. The CEO/SFA would have completed and submitted the annual application for the 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program. And,

2. The CEO/SFA received approval from the Office of Child Nutrition for the 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program. And,

3. The CEO/SFA are actively submitting monthly claims for reimbursement for the 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program.

 

If you did not apply, were not approved, and are not sending in monthly claim forms, you are not an approved 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program SFA. If you are not an approved SFA or RA, there is nothing further for you to do.

 

If you are an approved 2023-2024 National School Lunch Program SFA, and you cannot see or access the form in the IDEx application on the NYSED Business Application Portal, you need to request entitlements. To do so, follow the directions from the guidance document: IDEx National School Lunch Program Guidance: 

 

Please send a new email to Datasupport@nysed.gov with your full name, 12-digit BEDS Code, work email address, work phone number, and your request for access to the “Summer 2024 EBT for Religious and Independent NSLP Approved Schools – ONLY 2023-2024 Form.” Please be sure to include the name of the form as indicated in your request so your ticket will be directly assigned to the correct support group who can update your entitlements in SEDDAS.

 

SEDDAS refreshes overnight, and it should be in your portal account the following day. You will receive an automatic notification when you receive the entitlements. Once you have entitlements for the form, it will appear in the IDEx Application on your NYSED Business Application Portal Account.
