More Preschool Open Doors

Posted on Sep 26, 2017 in Main

The Department of Human Services has opened an additional application period for its Preschool Open Doors (POD) program and encourages families to apply by Oct. 31, 2017. Applications received during this period will be considered for preschool participation during Jan. 1, 2018 and June 30, 2018.

The program, which currently serves more than 1,400 children statewide, provides child care subsidies to eligible low- and moderate-income families to pay preschool tuition. Families may choose any one of the 426 state-licensed preschools. Interested families may request an application from the department’s POD contractor, PATCH, by visiting patchhawaii.org or calling 791-2130 or toll free 1-800-746-5620.
