Child Care Grant Opportunities
January 11, 2013
The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) grant is a federal program that aids Pell Grant eligible St. Louis Community College students with the cost of child care.
The CCAMPIS program at STLCC also conducts educational workshops on financial management, literacy, educational play/child development, success strategies for college parents and children’s physical/mental health.
More than 300 students have participated in the CCAMPIS program since 2009 and, when surveyed, more than 95 percent would recommend the CCAMPIS program to other STLCC students.
Children ages 2 to 12 years, who are enrolled or are enrolling in a quality licensed and accredited child care center, are eligible. Each CCAMPIS student is awarded a fixed dollar amount for child care expenses for the semester based on the student’s credit hours, level of income and travel/study time.
Spring 2013 CCAMPIS enrollment will take place until Feb. 1. Learn more about CCAMPIS.
