Providers must submit their attendance and menu records to our office no later than the 5th day of each month. Late menus may result in the loss of payment for that month. 

Checks are mailed once each month. Since our office must wait until the funds from the State office are deposited, the mail date is not the same day of the month.  Most often, checks are mailed between the 25th and the 30th.
** Tiering is determined by school district and census data. Most providers qualify for Tier I rates but if a provider resides in a Tier II area, she can qualify for Tier I rates by providing income information.  Contact our office to speak with a sponsor representative to get more information regarding Tiering.
