Summer Child Care Scholarship Application Submission Window Is Closed

2022 Summer Child Care Scholarship Application Submission Window Is Closed

The Montana Early Childhood and Family Support Division recognizes that the need for summer care and summer programming for school age children is important for a child’s development and to the economic viability of Montana.

The 2022 Summer Care Scholarship application period is now closed. The response was tremendous with over 5,000 applications submitted from around Montana! Thank you to everyone who applied.

The Early Childhood Services Bureau (ECSB) is currently processing the applications and then will be distributing them to the regional Child Care Resource and Referral agencies, including Family Connections.

Once Family Connections receives the applications for our regions, we will review each application in the order of the date the application was received. We will contact applicants to request the items we need to determine final approval.

Please be sure to respond promptly by the deadline indicated with the items requested to avoid delays in processing your application.

Once we receive the requested items, we will complete the approval process. If approved, a check will be mailed along with an approval letter. If not approved, you will receive a denial letter.

Thank you for your patience as we work diligently to process these applications in a timely manner.
