Support for Families

The Ministry of Education is providing financial support to parents to assist with the costs of educational resources during school and child care closures as a result of Ontario’s declared emergency to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Parents are eligible for a one-time per child payment of:

  • $200 for children aged 0-12, or
  • $250 for children with special needs aged 0-21.

Parents/guardians must submit one application per child. Only one parent / guardian may apply for each child. The parent / guardian who applies should have custody of the child.

If you have already successfully applied to the Support for Parents program and received payment through direct deposit, you are automatically eligible for the Support for Families program. You will receive email confirmation with a reference number and the Support for Families funding through direct deposit within the next two weeks.
