List of programs, descriptions, eligibility requirements and costs of each:
Scholarship Aid provides child care funding to low-income families entering the workforce or continuing their education. Families are eligible for a one-time scholarship (maximum $1,000). Often times there has been a job loss of one parent or other emergency which makes it difficult for a family to pay a child care bill.
