Preschool Scholarships are available to all children in Tama County. To find out if you are eligible contact Diane at Mid-Iowa Community Action to fill out an application for preschool scholarship funding.


Effective 7/1/06, income guidelines are up to 200% of poverty. Which means you can make up to $40,000 per year for a family of 4.
