July 1, 2022 - Schools that operated the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) in School Year (SY) 2021-2022 will be permitted to use a prior year's data for 30-day carryover, depending on how or if they processed household applications in SY 2021-2022 or SY 2020-2021. Note that schools that operated NSLP in SY 2021-2022 must apply 30-day carryover in accordance with standard program operations based on SY 2021-2022 eligibility data.

Schools that operated SSO in SY 2021-2022 have the following options for determining 30-day carryover:

      • SSO operators that processed and conducted verification on household applications district-wide in SY 2021-2022, in accordance with regulations, must use SY 2021-2022 eligibility data.
      • SSO operators that processed any applications in either SY 2021-2022 or SY 2020-2021 for P-EBT or other purposes but did not conduct district-wide application processing in either of those two years have two options:
          1. Option 1 - Use only data from the last year applications were processed in their entirety. This may be SY 2019-2020 data.
          2. Option 2 - Use last documented eligibility for each student, which may include applications processed in School Years 2021-2022, 2020-2021, and 2019-2020. SFAs using this option must use the student’s most recent status and not choose an earlier year’s status, even if that appears to be more beneficial to the student.

CEs must notify TDA by October 15, 2022 if they intend to use data from a year other than SY 2021-2022 for carryover eligibility by completing the 30-Day Carryover Eligibility Flexibility Notification Form available on the Intake Forms page of SquareMeals.org here.
