Child Care Financial Assistance
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 child care assistance before applying for YMCA Financial Assistance. Please see the information below on both ND/MN Child Care Assistance and YMCA Financial Assistance.
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 email@example.com
North Dakota and Minnesota Child Care Assistance
To determine if you are eligible for state assistance, please download a form below and submit the application 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 Child Care Scholarships
To determine if you are eligible for a YMCA Child Care Scholarship, please download the application form below and submit your completed application to one of the contacts listed on the form. Funds from the YMCA’s financial assistance program are made possible through United Way and the YMCA’s Annual Campaign. YMCA Child Care Scholarships are subject to change based on available funding and adherence to program policies. After you apply for a YMCA Child Care Scholarship, the YMCA Learning Center Financial Aid Coordinator will follow up with you. If you do qualify, your scholarship will be in effect the date your application has been approved by our office.
