• 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.
