DFI Title XX Camping services program
Funding for the DFI Title XX Camping Services Program comes from the State of Illinois Department of Human Services.
The American Camp Association, Illinois (ACA Illinois,) under contract with the State of Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS,) administers the DFI Title XX Camping Services Program. ACA Illinois purchases the camp services for eligible campers from day and resident camps that wish to participate. The relationship between ACA Illinois and any individual camp/organization is for purchase of service and payment for these services. This funding is not a grant.
ACA Illinois has determined eligibility in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Human Services. Campers receiving funding through the DFI Title XX funding program, must reside in the state of Illinois and qualify for one of the following: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Medicaid.
Please note: Camps may not charge any deposits or fees to campers or families funded under DFI Title XX Program; including transportation, spending money, T-shirts, craft items, horseback riding, field trips or anything else.
