KIDS Matching Grant Program
he State of Kansas wants all children to have an opportunity for a college education, including those from families who otherwise may not be able to afford it. Families from Kansas, meeting certain income requirements, are eligible to receive matching contributions.
The K.I.D.S. Matching Grant Program aids families living in Kansas with income less than 200% of the federal poverty level. Program participants also must be enrolled in the Learning Quest 529 Education Savings Program. You can open a college savings account with an initial investment of at least $25, or through recurring contributions of $25 a month (via payroll deduction or from your bank account).
