Iowa School Districts Free and Reduced Price Meal Program 

This web page is intended to remind schools (public Local Education Agencies – LEAs) that as per Administrative Code 283A.2, they are required to submit household information for the students eligible for free or reduced price meal benefits who have expressed interest in learning about hawk-i. Non-public LEAs are encouraged but not required to release household information.  Please submit the names of parents/guardians that are interested in receiving information about hawk-i health and dental coverage. Submitting the names of parents/guardians who have requested an application is done in an online process.

Public LEAs with no names to submit must still file a report with no names. The form for submitting the names require the use of a Microsoft Excel file. Access the MS Excel file of the form. Upon completing the information required on the MS Excel form, submit the form by emailing it to hawkischools@dhs.state.ia.us. Please call us at 1-800-257-8563 with any questions about the submittal process or if any of the links above does not work with your E-mail host.
