FUNDING FOR FAMILIES

A scholarship is available to help parents offset the costs of in-home care for children aged 0-18 who live in a household with a special circumstance.
The scholarship offers a flat award of $4,000 per eligible family, nothing more and nothing less. This award is to be used for in-home care expenses or in another provider's home, such as that of a family member, friend, or neighbor who is providing unregulated care for the child(ren).
