New Online Free & Reduced-Price Meal Application

District Instructions

Opt into the online free and reduced-price application in the DCA. Once you opt in, copy a URL to publicize to your families. You can process applications that are submitted. The eligibility math is done for you in the system.

There is a determining Official User Manual on the DCA login page to give you information about how the system operates and how to setup your district. Call Bitsey Draur, IT Project Manager, with questions at 406-461-5423.

Family Instructions

If your district has opted in to using the on-line free and reduced application (FRAPP), you can click on the button, select your district from the dropdown list, fill out, and submit the application. Your district may also provide you with a link; you can use that instead of this if you prefer. Click to view the User Guide.
