The United Way of Bucks County is interested in helping military families with early education expenses.

Bucks County’s military families can access additional education funding, thanks to an increase in available scholarship support from the United Way. The Lower Bucks Times mustered the details on these additional resources.

The help targets families that reside in Bucks County that also need help covering Pre-K or childcare costs for the 2022–2023 scholastic year.

Further requirements are:

  • Children must be 3–4 years old as of Aug. 31, 2022
  • Applying families must reside in Bucks County
  • Family income may not exceed $96,676, plus $17,017 for each dependent
  • One parent must be on active duty, reserve, guard forces, or a veteran/retiree

“We’re incredibly honored to help families who are serving or have served our country, particularly those who are working hard and still struggling,” said Candi Guerrero, director of education at United Way of Bucks County. “The cost of Pre-K is often a family’s biggest expense. These scholarships truly make a difference for working parents, and they give our youngest neighbors a strong start.”

Applications are being taken online.
