New guidelines will increase the entry income threshold from 50% of the State Median Income to 85%. This means that the entry income maximum for a family of four, for example, is changing from $42,426 to $72,124 for initial eligibility.
We encourage you to take advantage of the expansion of these benefits offered by the state and apply for CAPS assistance for our child care programming. This assistance can be applied summer day camp at Oak Tree Camps. Oak Tree Camps is invested in supporting our friends and neighbors by providing affordable summer child care to all area families. If you were not eligible for the state's CAPS program in the past, your status may have changed, so please investigate whether these new guidelines apply to your family (click here to learn more about the CAPS program and its guidelines). We hope to see you and your family at Oak Tree Camps!
The CAPS program supports early education goals by assisting low income families with the cost of child care while they work, go to school or training, or participate in other work-related activities. CAPS is administered by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
