Parish Still Accepting Applications For Uniform Voucher Program
Officials with Lafourche Parish Government and the Office of Community Action want to make residents aware of its ongoing Uniform Voucher Program.
The program, which is entering its third consecutive year, seeks to offer qualifying parish residents vouchers for free school uniforms to use at one of several specialized local vendors.
The vouchers provide each recipient per household with two school uniform shirts and bottoms, such as pants and skirts.
The program is paid for by a Federal Community Services Block Grant and is administered through the Louisiana Workforce Commission.
To qualify for uniform vouchers, the Office of Community Action requires you to completely fill out the CSBG application found online at lafourchegov.org.
The Office of Community Action asks residents to keep in mind before filling out an application: If you received assistance from this program in 2013, you will not be eligible for further assistance this year; and vouchers are given to clients only after all required applications have been submitted and approved.
For more information about the Uniform Voucher Program, contact Erica Adams at 985-537-7603.
