Summer Camp Financial Assistance Program Provides Support for Working Parents

Parents who earn low or moderate incomes may qualify for financial assistance to help in paying a portion of the costs for a summer day camp program for their school age children, under a program offered through New Trier Township Government.

"As the kids count down the days to summer many working parents in the Township are scrambling for seasonal childcare," notes Patricia B. Cantor, Supervisor. "For working parents, summer isn't only a difficult time to plan and arrange child care, it's also the most expensive part of the year," she adds, noting that the average family can spend up to half of their annual child care budget during the expensive summer months.
 
To be eligible for assistance, you must:
  • Have lawful custody of a child under age 13 who receives care in a licensed facility
  • Be a resident of New Trier Township
  • Be working full or part-time; attending school; and/or are in job training during the hours of the summer day camp program
  • Meet income guidelines. For example, a family of four must have income equal or less than $52,000. 
For an application and additional information on the Summer Camp Financial Assistance program, click here or call the Social Services Administrator at 847-446-8201. Applications are due March 14, 2011.
 
The Township also offers a financial assistance program for Child Care and Before and After School Care. Applications for 2011-2012 funding will be accepted beginning in July 2011.
