For additional information, please contact the NPS Unit at

These are the 2018-2019 per-student allocation levels associated with all four New York State loan programs:

Program Allocation Per Student
New York State Textbook Law (NYSTL) $58.25
New York State Software Law (NYSSL) $14.98
New York State Library (NYSLIB) $6.25

  • Each year, four unique “activity codes” are created in the FAMIS system for each school. These codes are specific to particular commodity groups/loan programs and must be accurately selected when placing your new fiscal year orders. These codes help ensure that your purchases are properly accounted for.
  • Changes in New York State education law allow New York State Textbook Law (NYSTL), New York State Software Law (NYSSL) and New York State Computer Hardware (NYSCH) funds to be used interchangeably. Schools wishing to participate may do so by signing into the FAMIS Portal and following the guidelines.
  • When submitting your purchase orders, please indicate your school address as reported in your BEDS data form. All instructional materials and equipment purchased for loan are to be delivered ONLY to your school at the address of record and must be kept on site in a secure manner.
  • All school address changes must be reported immediately to our office – the NPS Unit – to ensure that our records are accurate. Change of address notices must be printed onto school letterhead.
