Enables application processing, funds distribution, and compliance reporting

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Intellinetics, Inc. (NYSE American: INLX), a digital transformation solutions provider, announces that Action for Children, a Child Care Resource and Referral agency for central Ohio families and child care professionals, implemented the Intellinetics’ IntelliCloud™ electronic document management platform to successfully administer child care scholarships, child care provider incentives, and provider sign-on bonuses funded by the City of Columbus and the Franklin County Board of Commissioners with American Rescue Plan dollars in 2022-2023.

Action for Children administers the Franklin County RISE scholarship program in partnership with the City of Columbus and Franklin County Board of Commissioners to support families with the rising cost of child care. The program is intended to help families who are facing the “benefits cliff” in which they make too much to qualify for Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) but too little to afford child care. The program has surpassed its goal to provide scholarships of up to $10,000 per year for 750 children.

Action for Children also administers child care provider incentives as part of Franklin County RISE which focus on: programs participating in Publicly Funded Child Care, improving Step Up to Quality ratings, or providing care during non-traditional hours.

In one of the first actions of Franklin County RISE, Action for Children administered individual $1,000 signing bonuses for eligible open child care positions in Franklin County, thanks to funding from the City of Columbus.

Action for Children turned to Intellinetics for assistance in building an applicant tracking and approval process which includes Intellinetics’ eForms processing solution along with the IntelliCloud electronic document management solution for reporting and long-term secure records storage.

Eligible families first complete a joint application with their child care provider. All the application forms are filled out and digitally signed online. The documents are then routed to Action for Children where they go through an approval process. When approved, the distribution of funds is managed through the same solution.

“We knew we needed a trusted partner to ensure our applicants for Franklin County RISE felt secure. Intellinetics provided a best-in-class option for us, for the applicants and for our partners,” said Dr. Eric J. Karolak, Chief Executive Officer of Action for Children.

“Being able to process the number of applications we had, and in the timeframe our partners and families required, was at the forefront of our decision process. It had to be right, it had to be efficient, and most importantly, secure. With Intellinetics, we were able to launch this critical program in just one month.”

“Access to child care is a key tool for families to participate in the economy, for businesses to be able to have the workers they need, and for our economy to be able to thrive,” stated James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics. “ARPA funded programs provide both new opportunities and challenges. Our solutions serve a mission-critical role for organizations in highly regulated and compliance-intensive markets by making content secure, compliant, and process-ready to drive innovation, efficiencies, and growth.”
