COVID 19 Financial Relief for Families with Children in K-12

The Government of Yukon is providing a one-time payment of $250 per student to families with children in Kindergarten to Grade 12 who have been impacted by COVID-19.

This funding will help offset the financial costs related to COVID-19 by supporting families with additional resources for managing learning at home. We are providing this funding directly to families as you are in the best position to determine the resource and supports you need during this time.

Gouvernement du Yukon COVID-19 : aide financière pour les familles ayant des enfants au primaire ou au secondaire

Le gouvernement du Yukon offre une aide financière sous la forme d’un paiement unique de 250 $ par élève aux familles touchées par la COVID-19 ayant des enfants qui fréquentent l’école primaire ou secondaire (maternelle à 12e année).

Cette somme permettra aux familles de compenser les coûts liés aux ressources additionnelles nécessaires pour assurer l’éducation à la maison des enfants pendant la pandémie de COVID-19. Nous remettons les fonds directement aux familles, considérant que ce sont elles qui connaissent le mieux leurs besoins en ressources et en soutien dans le contexte actuel.

 

Frequently asked questions:

  • What if I share custody of the student(s) with another parent/caregiver? If you have shared custody and the student(s) live in two households, ONLY ONE HOUSEHOLD can apply – only ONE PRIMARY CAREGIVER can apply for each student. You will need to decide which household applies.
  • When will I receive the payment? Once your application is reviewed and verified to be correct, your payment will be mailed to you and you can expect it to take 2-3 weeks.
