- The state definition was changed so it matches the definition used for federal financial aid programs which requires a 2.0 GPA or academic standing consistent with graduation requirements. (Same criteria used for other state financial aid programs)
- Students under DWP are eligible for child care assistance through the DWP, so those benefits would be subtracted from actual child care costs used in the Postsecondary Child Care Grant award calculation
- The DWP is a program families are referred to for four months prior to going on MFIP.
*Maximum award will remain at $2,600.
$200 – $50 = $150 X 16 weeks = $2,400 semester
$75 – $50 = $25 X 16 weeks = $400 semester
$2,580 + 10% = $2,838/2 = $1,419 X 11/15 = $1,041 semester
$2,580/2 = $1,290 X 11/15 = $946 semester
Lesser of $2,400 actual costs vs $1,041 maximum award = $1,041
Lesser of $400 actual costs vs $946 maximum award = $400
