Designed to expand access to educational and enrichment activities for students who experienced learning disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic, ACE educational savings accounts are now available to any child ages 6-18 whose family income is at or less than 400% of the federal poverty level; who participate in Medicaid, SNAP, Ohio Works First or any other income-based benefits program; or who reside in a district identified as experiencing high rates of chronic absenteeism.
