The Idaho State Board of Education will cut off your request by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 6. That is this Friday.

This is actually a good sign because so many people have requested help they have to cut it off. So, take advantage if you're someone who needs family assistance regarding education during the pandemic.

Funding is available through Strong Families, Strong Students which is actually a program funded by Idaho's Coronavirus Relief Funds. You can use these funds to help with educational things and services that your household needs for the kids.

Take the grant if you can get it by applying now.
