COVID-19 child care tuition assistance program

New Jersey Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson announced on 9/21/2020 that applications are now open for the new COVID-19 child care tuition assistance program. The Murphy Administration has created this program to help families with child care costs as schools open remotely.

The $150 million program will provide child care tuition assistance to New Jersey families with incomes up to $75,000 that are in need of either full or part-time child care due to their child’s remote learning schedule.

Families can apply for this assistance by completing the online application at www.ChildCareNJ.gov. Those applying will need proof of income and a notice or announcement from their child’s school of a remote learning schedule.

Note, the income cap was increased from $75,000 to $150,000 on October 1. If you previously applied for tuition assistance and were denied because of income, someone will be reaching out to you shortly.

The New Jersey School-Age Tuition Assistance Program can help you pay for care for your school-age child in need of child care as a result of COVID-19 remote learning schools schedules.

To be eligible for this assistance, you must be:

  • a NJ resident;
  • your child must be attending school remotely, either part-time or full-time; and
  • your annual gross household income must be $150,000 or less.
