Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS)

The Childcare Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) is a federal grant funded 100% by the U.S. Department of Education. This program supports the participation of low-income student-parents enrolled in postsecondary education through the provision of campus-based child care services. These services include a stipend of up to $150 a week paid directly to participating Quality Rated childcare centers on behalf of the participant. In addition to minimizing childcare cost, CCAMPIS will partner with on- and off-campus resources to support and motivate student-parents toward the successful completion of a Bachelor’s degree.

Our Mission is to:

  • Increase retention and graduation rates by offering student-parents resources and academic support for them to overcome obstacles.
  • Increase financial and economic literacy skills.
  • Increase access to off-campus resources for wrap-around services.
  • Increase access and use of campus resources.
  • Increase campus engagement.
  • Increase in skills applicable to the workforce and the ability to obtain higher-salary jobs.
  • Enhance parenting skills.
  • Increase the confidence in the student-parent‘s ability to achieve goals, be successful, and sharpen parenting skills.

Participation is limited.
