The Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City is investing in the future of Kansas City’s Jewish community with its Right Start Preschool Incentive Program. The program offers eligible families a $1,000 grant upon enrolling their children in a local Jewish preschool. In addition to the $1,000 grants for qualifying full-time preschoolers, $500 grants are available for qualifying part-time preschoolers.
To receive the grant, three primary criteria must be met. To qualify, the child must:
- be the first in the family to attend a Jewish preschool
- be enrolling in a Jewish preschool for the first time, and
- have at least one parent who identifies as Jewish.
The Right Start Preschool Incentive Program has a rolling application deadline. All applications are considered on a “first come, first served” basis, good while funds last in any given school year. Families can apply at jewishkansascity.org/rightstart to use the incentive grant at participating Jewish preschools.
