The program is available to children age four years and under living in Wellfleet and to children of year-round employees of the town. The amount per child will be determined by the number of applicants, with a maximum of $7,000 per child per fiscal year.

Services may include domestic violence and sexual assault services, homelessness prevention, food and financial assistance, child care and education, counseling, and civil legal representation.
