Early Childhood Financial Assistance
Have you heard there is financial assistance of up to $7,500.00 to help low income families increase their access to Early Childhood Programs? If you haven’t, we’d encourage you to attend the Early Learning Scholarship Information Session!
Early Learning Scholarships provides funding to income-eligible families, with children three and four years of age, and sometimes their younger siblings. The purpose of the funding is to increase access to high-quality early childhood programs in order to improve school readiness.
Pine Technical & Community College is the Regional Administrator of the scholarships for the 5 county area of Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, and Pine. We would encourage everyone who works with families and children in these areas to attend! This is an important resource to share with families of young children.
This information session may be helpful to Social Workers, Foster Care, Financial Assistance Workers, Mental Health or Health Care Service Providers, Counselors, Early Childhood Advocates, Community Members and Families.
