Child Care scholarship

United Way of North Idaho COVID Crisis Child Care Scholarship

The UWNI Child Care Scholarship is a pool of funds created through grants and fundraising to support families who are attending school or employed and need assistance paying for care for pre-K and school-age children. You may qualify even if you also receive Idaho Child Care Assistance (ICCP). Scholarships are awarded as a monthly supplement paid directly to a licensed care provider. Families may receive up to $1500 total over a period of 2-5 months, based on need and funds available.
