Also, foster children or children whose familes are considered homeless are eligible. PACT reserves no less than 10% of enrollment slots for children who have special needs, regardless of income. PACT serves families up to 130% of the Poverty Guideline; and up to 10% of enrollment slots may be children over those income guidelines. Generally, PACT completes applications with families whose incomes are under these guidelines, and families whose incomes are not more than $5,000 over these guidelines.
