Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Low-income West Virginians can begin applying to receive state-issued clothing vouchers for their school-aged children.

The Department of Health and Human Resources says this year's vouchers will be worth $200 per eligible child.

To be eligible, a family of four can't make more than $1,767 a month, or about $21,000 a year.

The vouchers will become available in Mid-July and can be used to purchase clothing and piece goods.

The vouchers must be used by Oct. 31.

Applications will be mailed to families who received vouchers last year, or are currently receiving either Food Stamps or Medicaid.

Others may apply by contacting their local DHHR office, or by dialing 1-877-716-1212.
