School Clothing & Extracurricular Activities Reimbursement (SCECARP) applications are now available via the links provided below.
Any Shawnee citizen enrolled in a state certified Head Start or Pre-K through 12th grade educational institution or program qualifies for this benefit. The citizen’s family income, location, or dual citizenship status are not used to determine eligibility for this benefit.
Through its School Clothing and Extra Curricular Activities Reimbursement Program (SCECARP), the Shawnee Tribe provides funds to assist with reimbursable expenses incurred in the purchase of clothing, shoes, and required extracurricular items for tribal citizens who are enrolled in a state certified Head Start or Pre-K through 12th grade educational institution or program. The Education and Social Services Department can also provide a Direct Purchase option for families unable to prepurchase school clothing and shoes for reimbursement. This program is tribally funded and administered through the Education and Social Services Department.
Through SCECARP, the Education and Social Services department of the Shawnee Tribe will provide reimbursement up to $600 per child annually.
