Tuition Assistance program

The Tuition Assistance program enables us to extend access beyond financial support from other federal, state, local, and private funding sources. Families can apply for Tuition Assistance anytime and are encouraged to enroll throughout the academic year from August to May. The Tuition Assistance Program
supports families who:
• Have preschoolers aged three or four years old by September 30;
• Live within the CPS district boundaries;
• Live at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), which equates to about $79,500 for a family of four.

Community Providers eligible to participate in the CPP Tuition Assistance Program
are Family Child Care, single and multi-center sites, and Parochial Schools within the
Cincinnati Public School district. Each Provider must have achieved a quality rating of 3, 4, or 5 stars in
Ohio’s Step Up to Quality (SUTQ) system, earning them a CPP designation as “high-quality.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
Children
