General Information Regarding FACTS Grant and Aid


Families applying for financial aid will need to complete the FACTS Application on this page and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.  There is an application fee of $35 which, if paid via credit card will not incur additional fees.  Once your online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process.

This year, as in years past, the FACTS grant and aid application opens on December 01st and closes March 01st.  To complete the financial assistance application process, once the FACTS online application has been completed, the following information will need to be submitted to FACTS online:

  • Copies of families most recent Federal Tax forms, including all tax schedules and W2’s
  • Copies of supporting documents for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Worker’s Compensation, and TANF.
  • If the family owns a business, they will need to provide the Federal Tax forms from 2021-2022 and 2022-2023.
  • If the family is a DNF, please let me know that you want me to assess their application and consider them for a grant.  The sooner I know about these families, the better because oftentimes they need to provide documentation.

All supporting documentation must be uploaded online through the FACTS online form. You will receive a determination letter by May 30th. If you received a grant, your school will be notified and the grant will be sent directly to your school in October of 2023.
