Listen up Missoula families! If your kids under the age of 18 are receiving individualized or specialized care at home, you could be eligible for a $4000 COVID-19 scholarship from the Montana Department of Health and Human Services. This includes respite care, increased food and supply costs for in-home childcare, increased cleaning needs due to staying at home, and support for remote learning. Even if you think you're just kinda or sorta eligible, honestly, I recommend applying. The application is very brief and you could get some much-needed help during these difficult times. 

Download the application HERE. Remember, The intent of the scholarship is to provide a solution for those unique, special circumstances that cannot be served under the school or traditional child care model. The scholarship amount is $4000 per family and may be used for care in their home or in another provider’s home, such as a family member, a friend, or a neighbor.
