There is one-time funding available for families, available while schools are closed, to help offset the cost of additional materials. It is $200 for children 0-12 and $250 for children 0-21 with special needs.
An application must be submitted for each child. If families have previously applied for for coverage when there were strike days, they will automatically get this benefit.
If they have not applied, further information and the link can be found at:
This page also has the link to Support for Parents, which was the funding provided during the education strikes.
