We provide Childcare Grants and accompanying education grants to families with one or more parent in school full time. If you are accepted, you are then also eligible to apply for our family support program. We do not provide either education or emergency support to any family or individual that has not already been accepted to receive one of our Childcare Grants. If you need childcare assistance while you attend school full time, we encourage you to apply.
Program Eligibility Requirements: Full-time students with residential custody of a child(ren) under the age of 13 years and with incomes up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level may apply to the program.

As of Winter Quarter 2013, Seattle Milk Fund began accepting applications from students attending any Accredited Public College or University Campus in King County.
Applicants must be US Citizens or Legal Residents who have applied for citizenship.
Each student creates their own academic plan, and as long as they maintain a 2.0 grade point average each quarter, we fund through the completion of their chosen Bachelor’s degree, Associate degree or certificate program. Parents choose their own licensed childcare provider, and we pay the school and childcare provider directly.
We are currently accepting new applications for our waitlist. We fund applicants in the order in which we have received their application.
Please review the application to see if you meet our eligibility requirements before applying.
