Why is Merit emailing me about ACE Ohio?

The Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) Educational Savings Program has partnered with Merit to ensure qualified individuals receive up to $1,000 per student per year to spend on after-school enrichment. 

Merit will contact organizations that offer approved services or materials to Ohio students. Organizations that would like to participate in the Ohio ACE program will complete a Qualified Education or Service Provider (QESP) application. Approved organizations and businesses will be added to the Ohio ACE online marketplace. 

Merit will support qualified parents and guardians with reimbursement submission and direct payments to qualified organizations. 

The integrated process ensures that allocated funds reach and positively impact Ohio students and families.
