Child Care Assistance for Post-Secondary Education Students.
Minnesota Higher Education Services Office, St. Paul.
This booklet describes the Post-Secondary Child Care Grant Program in Minnesota and provides suggestions in evaluating child care options. The Minnesota Higher Education Services Office administers the program. It allocates funds to eligible colleges, which then select and make awards to students. A resident of Minnesota with a child of 12 years of age or younger (14 if disabled) who is enrolled at least half-time and does not receive Minnesota Family Investment Program benefits may be eligible for the child care grant is certain other conditions, spelled out in this booklet, are met. Both public postsecondary and private baccalaureate-granting institutions are eligible to participate. How to apply, how the award is calculated, and how funds are disbursed are explained. Also explained are tax credits for state and federal income taxes, including the earned income tax credit and Minnesota's Working Family Credit. Information is also provided on finding and selecting child care. There is a referral service in every part of Minnesota, but the state does not guarantee the quality of the programs. Contact information is provided for members of the Minnesota Child Care Resource and Referral Network. (SLD)
