Thank you for your interest in the K.I.D.S. program! You are taking an important step in securing your children's dreams of an education beyond high school.
In January of 2017, we will be working to update forms for this year and process the state's matching payments for 2016 participants. The program will not accept any new applications until at least February 15, 2015 after the federal government resets the income guidelines for 2017. This will also give you a chance to complete your 2016 income tax return which is needed to apply for the program. Please check back with us after February 15th to download the application. If you don’t already have a Learning Quest account, you can get started by opening an account at www.learningquest.com. Please remember that we process applications on a first come-first served basis, so it's best to get yours in as soon as you have completed your 2016 tax return.
If you participated in K.I.D.S. in 2016, please remember that you must reapply each year. You'll receive a confirmation statement from Learning Quest when the state makes its 2016 matching deposit in your account. This usually happens the last week of January.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 1-866-504-5898.
