For every child you have from the age of zero to grade 12, you will receive $400, states the government.

Parents who have already applied for the first round of funding through the Support for Learners payments will have this money deposited into their accounts as soon as April 26, 2021.

For those who haven't applied yet, you still can. Applications for the latest round of funding will open on May 3, 2021, with a deadline of May 17, 2021.
