$1,800 Smart Move Grant

The 2024-2025 Smart Move application is open. Apply below

The Greater MetroWest Day School Initiative will award grants of $1,800 to each family making the Smart Move to Greater MetroWest NJ from outside the area who has registered their child(ren) at a Greater MetroWest NJ Jewish Day School.

To qualify, a family must:

  • Move to the area between September 1, 2023 and September 1, 2024. If a family has a child entering Kindergarten only, they may have moved between the dates of July 1, 2021 and September 1, 2024.
  • Register at Golda Och Academy, Gottesman RTW Academy, Jewish Educational Center (JEC), or Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy/Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School for the 2024-2025 school year.
  • Meet all the requirements of school registration. This grant is awarded through a reduction in tuition fees, after tuition has been adjusted by the school for any scholarship and middle-income grants, including our Tuition MAX program.

Each application will be time-stamped, and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Awards are pending confirmation of move-in date and registration with the school in September 2024. Awards will be granted and reduced from the cost of tuition in or around October 2024. The Smart Move $1,800 Grant is available to families who are enrolling children in Pre-K to 12 (or the two years before 1st grade by another name).
