Am I eligible?

ACE awards are needs-based, not merit-based. Eligibility is based on total income (which is line 9 on the 1040 for those who file) and household size. You can see our eligibility guidelines here (scroll down to select your state to see the guidelines for that state). 

In order to be eligible,  you must have fully completed and submitted your application by the deadline (April 15th at 11:59 PM).
