The application process opened on November 1, 2019. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.


  • December 31, 2019 - Priority Application Deadline - We encourage you to complete the application by this date.

  • March 30, 2020 - Application process closes

​Important Notes:​

  • Historically, the funds we receive are generated from PA State tax credits, and therefore only ​available to P​ennsylvania residents.  If other funds are received, non-residents may be eligible for assistance.

  • ​​Applications will be accepted for children in grades PreK-8.  Historically, the funds we receive are mainly for grades K-8, but some years funds are made available for Pre-K students.​
