Fresh Bucks prioritizes enrollment through community-based enrollment (see below for more details). A total of 7,500 applicants will be enrolled for 2020 Fresh Bucks Vouchers. There are a total of 1,900 enrollment spots available through the Public Lottery enrollment. A computer-generated randomized selection process conducted by a third party will be used to randomly select program recipients. Each applicant is assigned an “unfiltered” randomized ranking between 1 and the total number of applicants. (For example, in a lottery with 10,000 applicants, each applicant is randomly assigned a number between 1 and 10,000).
All applicants will be notified of their application status by mail by May 15, 2020.
