The School Clothing Allowance (SCA) program provides vouchers for clothing appropriate for school such as pants, shirts, skirts, dresses, shoes, coats, underwear and other basic clothing. Piece goods may be purchased to make clothing if the family desires. Purchases made with the vouchers are exempt from sales tax and some stores offer discounts to customers who use the vouchers in their stores. Applications will be accepted from July 1 through July 31 or as designated by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. Vouchers must be redeemed by October 31 of the current program year. Clothing cannot be returned for cash (only exchanged).
