When will I receive an INCENTIVE$ award check?

Each participant who meets the requirements for INCENTIVE$ and remains eligible will receive an incentive check in the seventh month, after the completion of a six-month commitment period. The commitment period means that the early educator has remained continuously employed in the qualified child care or early learning center or family child care home. The commitment period is established for each individual participant based on the application date, date of employment and documentation of education. The amount of the INCENTIVE$ award is based on one-half of the annual award amount and reflects the schedule worked during the six-month period (part-time prorated or full time). All payments are contingent upon funding availability.
