Voice of Lakewood had a big piece on it, though I heard that there was some misinformation in the piece. (Not sure exactly what though)

Dear Parents,

The New Jersey office of Agudath Israel of America, in partnership with the Lakewood Township is proud to announce:

The Educational Assistance Program to help ease the burden of educational costs for families financially affected by covid.

The Educational Assistance Program is Lakewood township-sponsored grant being administered through the Agudath Israel of America’s New Jersey office. The EAP is available for Lakewood residents who meet income eligibility requirements, have suffered a financial loss due to covid and have outstanding educational costs. Grants start at a minimum of $2,500.

To apply, please go to: www.agudah.org/eap

The Educational Assistance Program is being funded by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

This grant is the first of its kind in the State of New Jersey, in which government funding will be available for private school tuition, amongst other educational uses. The grant is sponsored by Lakewood Township through the American Rescue Plan of 2021, and is being administered through the New Jersey office of Agudath Israel. The grant is available to Lakewood residents who were financially adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, demonstrable by a lower adjusted gross income for 2020 than for 2019, and whose 2020 income was lower than $198,000 for a married couple (or $99,000 for an individual). The eligibility limit is raised $10,000 for every qualifying dependent. (Thus, a jointly filing couple with five dependents will be eligible if their income does not exceed $248,000.00). Grants will be a minimum of $2,500 and will be sent directly to families. Lakewood residents c can apply for the grant a . Applicants will be asked to fill out information and submit a copy of the 2019 and 202 Tax Return as well as an outstanding educational bill (e.g. private school tuition, tutoring expenses etc.) If the number of applicants exceeds available funds, a lottery will be employed to determine winners. 

Any questions regarding the grant can be emailed to eap@agudah.org or call 212-797-9000 and leave a detailed message.
