Family income is the sole factor in determining whether a child is eligible to apply to Summer Steps. Children from all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, and family configurations are encouraged to apply if they meet the income requirements.
Families accepted into the program are asked to pay a nominal fee (between $10 and $30 a week, depending on income level) per child.
