Special Education Bridge Loans to Individual Families

HFLS Special Education Bridge Loans to Individual Families help low- and moderate-income families access appropriate special education for their special needs children. The loans provide school tuition while the family awaits payment or reimbursement from the Department of Education, a process that can take many months.

To learn more about the Special Education Bridge Loans, required documents, and the HFLS loan process, please view the Special Education Bridge Loans Information Sheet. If you are interested in applying, contact HFLS Deputy Director Kim Kaplan at kkaplan@hfls.org or (212) 687-0188 x207.

The Hebrew Free Loan Society makes interest-free loans to low- and moderate-income individuals and families living in New York City’s five boroughs, Westchester, or Long Island. You can view our income guidelines here.

If you have financial need for an interest-free loan but your household income is higher than the amount listed for your household size, please contact HFLS to discuss whether you qualify for a loan based on your specific situation.
