MANSFIELD — If you're an Ohio resident and a parent, you're likely eligible for $1,000.

The state legislature recently expanded its Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) educational savings account program, which provides qualifying families with a $1,000 credit per child for enrichment and educational activities.

Eligibility for the ACE program was expanded earlier this year through House Bill 45.
