What if two applications, one from each parent with different eligibility levels, are submitted for the same child?

Answer: 

The income application that results in the highest reimbursement for the center may be used to determine the eligibility level for the child. Once an income application is approved for free or reduced price benefits, the eligibility is in effect for a period not to exceed 13 months. If the family does not qualify when they first apply (or they are eligible for reduced price benefits) the family may apply again at any time.
