Place Category: Preschool Financial Aid & Child Care Subsidies
Preschool Open Doors (POD) can assist with preschool tuition:
POD promotes school readiness by providing child care subsidies to eligible families for the year prior to kindergarten. The Department of Human Services (DHS) contracts with PATCH to run the program.
For the 2016-17 school year, priority will be children born August 1 – December 31, 2011 who are under-served or at-risk. Eligible families select the DHS-licensed group child care facility (i.e. preschool) of their choice. Household size and monthly gross income also are used to determine priority. POD does not require parents/guardians to be employed, in school, or job training to qualify for assistance. Income eligibility for tuition subsidies is based on a monthly gross family income not exceeding the amounts below. The subsidy amount is based on a sliding fee scale using the family monthly gross income and the maximum POD rate allowed for the selected preschool.
