Because this program is need-based, you must submit documentation to verify dependents and income (a copy of the first two pages of your previous year's IRS Form 1040). You will also need to submit the previous year's 1040s for all wage earners in your household.

Because the program must be funded each year by the legislature, there is no guarantee the program will continue from year to year. In addition, the amount of money for the program allocated by the legislature will vary from year to year.
