In many locations both landlords and tenants can apply.

I'm not going to repost all the program details here (see link in my signature block below), but I can do my best to answer any questions for areas that already have a live application.

Couldn't find an existing thread- kindly point out if there is one.

Here's my story:

In July or August of 2018 my husband and I took a short weekend trip by car. We were in a hurry when leaving, and at the last minute remembered that we'll need a knife- I placed it in my laptop bag since that was accessible at the moment, and promptly forgot about it. Apparently we didn't use it over Shabbos because that's where it stayed.

Subsequent trips by plane with my laptop bag, and the knife buried under the laptop:
(Keep in mind that I always take my laptop bag as a carry on)

JFK- DEN (missed the flight but passed security)


We drove from Nashville to Kentucky, and for some reason when we got there I shook out my laptop bag to find something, and guess what fell out. I was dumbstruck. The knife had made it through security no less than 9 times! Now that I knew about it I was nervous to try it a tenth time, and I decided to leave it in the hotel room.

The offending knife when I found it:

« on: August 28, 2020, 03:07:13 PM »
I have a detailed write-up linked my signature block below, but in a nutshell:

  • Families with an annual income of up to 200% of the federal poverty level can apply for childcare subsidies for children age 5-13 who are enrolled in a licensed childcare center or registered family childcare provider.
  • Those who are not eligible for the above but earn below 75k annually and have children age 5-13 who are in need of either full or part-time childcare due to their school’s remote learning schedule can apply for subsidies to enroll their child in a licensed childcare center or registered family childcare provider.

Childcare Providers:
  • $75 supplemental monthly payment for each infant, toddler, or child enrolled in a childcare subsidy program
  • Funds to assist with PPE and other cleaning materials. Funding amount depends on licensed child capacity limit.

Lowe's Round 2 of grants is now open. The grants are administered via LISC, which is in it's 5th round (Rounds 1-3 Verizon, Rounds 4-5 Lowe's).
Maximum grant of 20k.
You can apply for this round if you did not receive a grant from a previous round.
