Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), established in the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, improves access to free school meals in eligible high poverty local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools. In School Year 2019-2020, it is estimated that CEP reached over 39,000 students throughout Colorado. It is a federal requirement that all SFAs report data to the Colorado Department of Education School Nutrition Unit to determine CEP eligibility for the following year.
