School Readiness Child Care Financial Assistance allows eligible families to offset the expense of child care by paying a reduced parent fee. Assistance is available to families who:
- Are at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level; AND
- Are employed at least 20 hours per week OR a full-time student
- What does School Readiness pay for?
- Families need to apply through the Family Portal.
- Once you apply, your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted by a staff member by email. If you are potentially eligible, you will be placed on the Wait List until enrollment takes place, depending on availability of funding.
- Once funding for School Readiness becomes available, ELC of Duval will send a funding notification to the family via email.
Please call ELC monthly to verify your information and check your status on the wait list. If you move, be sure to update your address. For any questions, contact Child & Family Resources at 904-208-2044 x1 or via email at email@example.com
