How is eligibility determined after a student applies?

NC Division of Social Services (DSS) determines the initial eligibility of each applicant. The NC Reach program is unable to officially start working with a student until they are deemed eligible by the State of North Carolina.

Once a student's eligibility is determined, they will be contacted by a member of Foster Care to Success.

A) If the student is made eligible, they will be contacted by phone and email by the Coordinator who works with the school they noted in their application that they are attending.

B) If the student is made ineligible, they will be contacted and receive notification as to why they are ineligible.
