The Connect Kids Program is a field trip refund grant program.

The Connect Kids will refund up to $1,000* of the field trip costs for visits to John Jay Homestead State Historic Site. Grants are available on a first come, first served basis. Grants refund field trip costs including transportation, program fees, entry fees, and/or pavilion fees. Schools, youth bureaus, or afterschool programs pay for services first and are then reimbursed their expenses after the trip. Chaperones that drive separately will not be refunded for any field trip expenses.

Title 1 schools AND any public school in a district with a Title 1 school (grades preK-12 including school-sponsored clubs), Advantage After School Programs, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and village, town, or county youth bureaus in communities with Title 1 schools are eligible to apply. Each class or afterschool/youth bureau group is eligible for one transportation grant per academic year.

If your school is not eligible for The Connect Kids Program, please let us know. We may be able to help you secure funding for your visit from another source.
