We believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed. That’s why we offer multiple resources to help families pay for child care expenses. To qualify for financial assistance, you must be currently enrolled or in the process of enrolling at one of our child care programs. Financial assistance is designed to help cover expenses based on your family size and gross income per your household.
It is possible for families to qualify for both North Dakota/Minnesota and YMCA financial assistance programs. However, we encourage families to apply for state assistance before applying for YMCA assistance. Please see information on both North Dakota/Minnesota and YMCA financial assistance programs below.
For a full list of rules and guidelines surrounding YMCA Child Care Financial Assistance, or if you have any questions, please contact us at 218.359.2326 or firstname.lastname@example.org
North Dakota and Minnesota Financial Assistance
To determine if you are eligible for state assistance, please download and submit the application forms to the contacts listed on each form. Enrollment fee and the first two weeks of tuition are required at the time of enrollment. If you are on North Dakota or Minnesota financial assistance, you must pay the enrollment fee and half of your month co-pay. If you do not have your North Dakota or Minnesota certification form showing your co-pay amount, you must pay for the first two weeks of tuition in full.
YMCA Financial Assistance
To determine if you are eligible for YMCA assistance, please download and submit the application forms to the contacts listed on each form. Funds from the YMCA’s financial assistance program are made possible through the United Way and the YMCA Partner of Youth Annual Campaigns. Funds may change based on funding. After you apply for assistance through the YMCA, a YMCA staff member will follow up with you. If you do qualify, your assistance will be in effect the date of your application submission to our office.
