Disabilities Grant Program FAQ

North Carolina

~~“What is the Disabilities Grant Program?
The Disabilities Grant Program expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The Disabilities Grant program provides funding of up to $8,000 per year to help parents pay qualified expenses for children with disabilities who attend school in an eligible setting.

Who applies? How does it work?
Parents submit an application for the Disabilities Grant on behalf of their children. In order to receive Disabilities Grant funds, the student may attend a participating nonpublic school; the parent must arrange for application or enrollment at the school separately from the application for the Disabilities Grant. Parents, including parents who home school their children, may also seek reimbursement for qualified expenses. See the Program Overview for more information about how the Disabilities Grant works and the timeline for application and award. Also see the rest of these Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the application process and eligibility requirements.”
