Need Based Financial Aid
Please read to see if you may qualify, application is below.
Need-based financial aid is available to eligible families throughout the year. Need-based aid varies in amounts – depending on your financial eligibility and the availability of funds. Unfortunately, we do not have sufficient funds to help every family who qualifies for need-based assistance. The Board of Directors has a financial aid committee who receives anonymous fact based information to aid them in their decisions. KidsArts accepts Childcare Choices of Boston and enrollment is considered along with financial assistance applications.
In order to assess a family’s financial need, KidsArts follows the guidelines set up by the City of Boston HUD’s median income chart. We will only consider financial assistance for families who have an adjusted gross income that falls below the 80% median income bracket. If you are unsure where you fall please consult the chart.
KidsArts requires a copy of your latest 1040 Income Tax Form or equivalent information to verify your income once per year. Submit documentation once per year with the financial assistance application to substantiate your income level. The information requested is confidential and is necessary to help determine the degree of need for each applicant. Financial assistance will be denied without documentation once per year.
To apply for need-based financial assistance please complete the form below and upload a copy of your latest 1040 Income Tax Form. If you have any questions you can contact us. All information is kept confidential. To read our Financial Aid Policies please click here. You will also receive a copy of the policy if you are approved.
