CalKIDS Program Offers Up to $1,500 for College Savings to California Families with Young Children

According to The US Sun, in California, families can receive up to $1,500 through the CalKIDS program to help pay for their children’s college. This initiative is designed to start saving for college early, targeting families with newborns or young kids born after July 1, 2022. The goal is to make it easier for families to afford higher education by giving them money that can be used for tuition at different types of schools.

Noah Lightman, overseeing CalKIDS, emphasizes how the program urges parents to prepare for their children’s schooling. Research indicates that children who have savings accounts are more inclined to consider attending college. Despite these advantages, many eligible families have yet to collect their funds, prompting ongoing efforts to raise awareness, particularly in various counties throughout California.
