NOTE: Starting July 1st, 2021, we have partnered with Minnesota Afterschool Advance (MAA) to help families leverage the MN tax credit. Consider also applying through MAA for tax-credit assistance to cover up to 75% of the cost of this camp (you pay 25%). For more information and to apply, visit here.

MAA provides the funding by helping families utilize the K-12 Education Tax Credit. MAA makes a no-interest advance to you for the amount of the tax credit, and then state dollars automatically repay the advance when you file your taxes at the end of the year. Hamline's Renewable Energy and Innovation camps qualify for this funding! To be eligible for MAA, your annual household income must be $33,500 or less in 2020 and 2021, regardless of household size.

Once you are approved by MAA, please pay the 25% ($174.50) directly to MAA here. For further questions about this process, please contact Maya at MAA maa@youthprise.com -- 612-692-5530
