Sign Up for Funding
For over 50 years, the DFI Title XX Camping Services Program has provided funding for 250,000+ clients of the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) to attend summer camps. Summer camps that participate in this program commit to working towards the four established outcomes of this program to help the clients.
The American Camp Association, Illinois (ACA Illinois), under contract with the State of Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), administers the DFI Title XX Camping Services Program. In IDHS this program is referred to as the Donated Funds Initiative (DFI) because of the matching funds involved in the program. ACA Illinois purchases the camping services for eligible campers from day and resident camps that wish to participate. The relationship between ACA Illinois and any individual camp/organization is for purchase of service and payment for these services.
*Please note: this program is not a grant.
