Crawford County Job & Family Services announced another round of their “Back 2 School Wear” Program for eligible Crawford County children in grades K-12 who attend school in person. A limited selection of new t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, sweatpants, and gym shorts will be provided to eligible families. School logos will be optional.
The program is made possible by special one-time funding received from the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services to support the local TANF-PRC Program. This funding is made available to Ohio through The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to assist needy families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The application deadline is August 22, 2022, but the application period may end early if funds become fully obligated. Applications can be picked up at Crawford County Job & Family Services, 224 Norton Way or 225 E. Mary St. Bucyrus, printed off from https://crawfordcountyjfs.org/prc-net-transportation/, or picked up at either the Galion Public Library or Crestline Public Library. Income guidelines are listed on the application and can also be viewed on the Crawford County Job & Family Services website. To request an application be mailed or to ask questions, call 419-562-8066. Completed applications should be returned to 225 E. Mary St., Bucyrus or faxed to 419-562-7970 promptly.
Clothing orders for approved applications are expected to be delivered by the end of September or early October. Families who have already applied and been approved in the first round are not eligible for a second round.
