The REWARD$ Program

REWARD$ Incentives are available only in the following six regions beginning Fall 2015:Graham/Greenlee, Pima North, Pima South, San Carlos Apache, Navajo Nation and White Mountain Apache.

The Professional REWARD$ program is the newest First Things First statewide initiative offering a financial incentive to child care professionals working with children birth through age 5. The program acknowledges and rewards progressive education, educational attainment and commitment to continuous employment at a child care center, group or family child care home regulated by a Federal, State or Tribal authority. Approved child care professionals will receive a financial incentive ranging from $300 to $2,000 based on their education.
