The applications allow parents to apply for free or reduced-price lunch for their children. Some schools in the district are designated Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) sites, where students eat breakfast and lunch free daily. However, these students must also complete forms, since meal applications from all students will help determine state and federal funding for HISD schools. In addition, students may also qualify for additional benefits under the state and federal programs by completing the application. Even parents who know their child will not be eating school food or will not qualify for free or reduced-price meals are urged to fill out an application since they determine funding for each school.
