NEW: Child-care Assistance
The New Jersey School-Age Tuition Assistance Program will provide tuition assistance to parents and caretakers with school-age children (5 to 13 years old) in need of child care due to schools’ remote learning schedules.
The tuition assistance will be directly paid to the child's selected licensed or registered child care provider from September 1, 2020 through December 30, 2020 based on the hours of care needed.
