What We Do:

On My Way Pre-K

On My Way Pre-K awards grants to low income families so they can have access to high-quality pre-K programs. Families who receive a grant may use the grant for any approved On My Way Pre-K Program.

On My Way Pre-K applications are for grants to eligible children who are 4 years old but not yet 5 years old on August 1, 2017, and will be attending kindergarten in the 2018-19 school year. These grants will be good for pre-k programs starting in August 2017.

For families who live in Marion County, grants are also available for
3-year-olds who will be 3 by August 1, 2017 through the Indy Preschool Scholarship Program (IndyPSP) grants. The same application can be used for both On My Way Pre-K and Indy PSP grants. 

The On My Way Pre-K application deadline for the 2017-18 pre-K year was March 31, 2017. If you missed that deadline, FSSA encourages you to submit an application by August 31, 2017. Families who applied prior to the March 31st deadline will be given first priority in the On My Way
Pre-k lottery process for available slots. Should spaces become available
after the lottery process is complete, FSSA will consider those applications
received after the March 31st deadline on a first-come first-served basis.
