Scholarships are limited, one-time grants, with a choice of either $1,500 or $2,500 per eligible child based on a family's summer care costs.

Eligible families have: Parents/guardians engaged in the workforce; Children entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the Fall of 2022; Be able to demonstrate a need for out-of-school programming/child care for the summer; and Not currently participating in the Best Beginnings Child Care Scholarship.

The application opens May 20th at 9:00 a.m. I’ve also attached a QR code if that’s helpful.
