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.

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.
