Apply Now For Preschool Tuition Aid
Preschool Open Doors (POD) program is accepting applications for preschool tuition assistance.
POD is operated by People Attentive To Children (PATCH) on behalf of the state Department of Human Services. POD helps qualifying low- and moderate-income families send their children to preschool by providing child care subsidies to the family. Priority is given to children with special needs or at-risk factors. Household size and monthly gross income also are used to determine priority. POD does not require parents/guardians to be employed, in school or in job training to qualify for assistance.
Families with children born between Aug. 1, 2010, and July 31, 2011, can apply. Applications for the 2015-16 school year will be accepted until April 30, and are available for download in English or Chinese at patchhawaii.org. Call 791-2130 to request an application by mail, or 791-2131 for more information.
