Child Care Scholarships
Access to affordable, high-quality child care remains a barrier for many parents, especially mothers, who are trying to return to the workforce. While Publicly Funded Child Care is available for families at the lowest income bracket, for too many working families, affordable, quality child care remains out of reach.
This fund provides scholarships of up to $10,000 annually for 500 children each year. Families must complete a joint application with their child care provider.
The RISE Child Care Scholarship program is funded jointly by Franklin County and the City of Columbus and administered by Action for Children.
