Community Tuition Assistance Program

The Community Tuition Assistance Program is a coordinated county-wide tuition assistance program with a common application and eligibility guidelines. Tuition Assistance Funding is allocated to participating early care and education programs based on enrollment and quality rating and those programs distribute funding directly to families. Grand Beginnings leads fundraising efforts and oversees allocations but does not make funding decisions. Families interested in tuition assistance should speak directly the Early Care and Education Program they are enrolled/enrolling with.

Individuals interested in supporting tuition assistance can donate directly to Grand Beginnings and mark the donation “Tuition Assistance.”
