Child Care Tuition Assistance Now Available For Working Families

Apply Now for Child Care Tuition Assistance

Families can now apply for child care tuition assistance to help with care for children who have remote learning schedules due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

To be eligible for assistance from the New Jersey School-Age Tuition Assistance Program, you must be:

* a NJ resident with a child ages 5-13 years old

* your child must be attending school remotely, either part-time or full-time
* your annual gross household income must be $75,000 or less
                                                                                                                                The application is available online.  Assistance is available until December 30, 2020.
Applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted.

Assistance will be paid directly to the licensed child care center you select up to $634 a month or a registered family child care provider you select up to $526 a month for full-time care. If the assistance doesn’t equal the child care provider’s rate, the provider may charge you the difference.
