Menstrual Hygiene Products for School Districts
"On and after September 1, 2023, each local and regional board of education shall provide free menstrual products...in women's restrooms, all-gender restrooms, and at least one men's restroom..."
By June 2023, all Connecticut public schools should have the systems and supplies in place.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) secured 2 million dollars for schools to use in meeting this legislative requirement. LEARN, on behalf of Connecticut's RESC Alliance, is working with DPH to disseminate those valuable monetary resources. Connecticut public schools may expect to receive a check to use for menstrual supplies by May 1, 2023!
House Bill No. 5506
Public Act No. 22-118
Page 112, Sec. 84
Effective July 1, 2022
In addition to the monetary resources, DPH and LEARN vetted 2 vendors with which schools might choose to work; Cintas and Citron Hygiene.
Cintas can help schools with set up and the initial stocking of supplies.
Citron Hygiene can help schools with set up, initial stocking, and refill service tailored to needs.
Please contact companies directly for information on set up, supplies, and maintenance. For questions on your district's allocation, email
