2017 EIP scholarship funds are currently available. Application submissions will be accepted through December 1, 2017.

EIP Scholarships are available for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid (CPR/FA) Training

Funding has been dedicated specifically for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid (FA) training. The training must be provided by an approved trainer participating with the Educational Incentive Program. You can find a list of training organizations providing CPR/First Aid Training here.

  2. You must be a paid employee, or the direct supervisor of a paid employee in a NYS OCFS or NYC DOHMH registered or licensed child care program.
  3. You must be currently caring for children, or the direct supervisor of employees who care for children, as part of the adult/child ratio requirement.
  4. Your household adjusted gross income as reported on your most recent IRS Form 1040 must fall within the ranges on the income chart.

See this chart for acceptable forms of employment verification.

*Exception Substitutes in family/group family day care are eligible to receive CPR/FA scholarships.

Scholarship awards will be issued for up to $125 for classroom training, and up to $95 for online training that includes a face-to-face skills testing component. CPR/FA scholarships are in addition to your maximum annual scholarship amount.
