*APS does not provide or recommend child care providers and does not assume responsibility or liability for child care services of any sort. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s) to thoroughly investigate all child care providers.
If the number of requests for grants exceeds the funding, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.
APS reserves the right to deny funds to applicants who misrepresent their funding needs.
Changes in Circumstances
If the need for your grant changes between when you applied and the date of the Meeting, you must notify APS to explain. You will be notified if your need is still eligible for funding.
