The Department is committed to supporting residents of Massachusetts in their endeavors towards self-sufficiency. One means of achieving this goal is the pursuit of higher education. As such, the Department has coordinated with external partners to complete targeted outreach to students enrolled in school beyond the secondary level.
Outreach will include a notice informing students that they may be eligible for SNAP if they are in receipt of the MassGrant. The Educational Income and Expense (EDUC-1) form will be included as an insert.
In addition, BEACON will automatically enter a narrative in the case record of all former applicants/clients who were removed from a household as an ineligible student.
