Reimbursement on Educational Expenses and Internet Assistance
The Foundation for Rural Housing is a nonprofit that helps to prevent homelessness. They have a program right now that is for reimbursement of supplement educational expenses. This program is designed to prevent, prepare, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualified applicants can receive reimbursement up to $300 for supplemental educational expenses. You must provide them with receipts of the expenses. To qualify for this program you must be at or below 150% of FPL. Typically, if your child qualifies for the free lunch program you will qualify for our program. Examples of qualified expenses are masks, hand sanitizer, internet charges, electronic devices, paper, printer ink, printer and school supplies/clothes if you indicate you have other out-of-pocket expenses that have made it more difficult to purchase school related items.
In addition, this organization has a program called HomeNet. If you need internet at home and cannot afford the services for your middle/high school students, please give them a call at (608) 238-3448 or email email@example.com. You can find all of their assistance program information at https://www.wisconsinruralhousing.org/.
