How does my child qualify?
To qualify, any or all of your children have to meet the following conditions:
- Traveled 20 miles one way or crossed school district boundaries to go commercial fishing, subsistence fishing, clamming or berry picking.
- Spent a total of 7 nights/8 days away from home doing ‘qualifying’ activities within a 12-month period (does not have to be consecutive nights).
- There is an economic need for the commercial or subsistence activities.
- Children ages birth to 20 (22 if the child is receiving special education services) can qualify for the program. However, once a child has graduated with a diploma, they no longer qualify for services.
