CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – With July 4th behind us, it’s already time to be thinking “back to school”.

And, Stark County Job and Family Services is offering eligible Stark County school-age children a one-time $200 payment for school clothing.

Students must be on the SNAP program.

Online and home-schooled students are not eligible.

The kids also get a backpack filled with supplies.

You can apply online, send an email, or go to the office at 3rd Street and Walnut Avenue SE and pick up a form.
