Campus Based Childcare

Strengthening Rural Community Colleges

November 1, 2022

One in five undergraduate college students today is a parent, and yet they're 10 times less likely to graduate. Many institutions of higher education (IHEs) are challenged with supporting students that need childcare to stay engaged with their education. The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program supports the participation of low-income parents in post-secondary education through the provision of campus-based child care services. Funds are used to support or establish campus-based child care programs primarily serving the needs of low-income students enrolled in institutions of higher education. Grants may be used for before- and after-school services. In addition, grants may be used to serve the child care needs of the community served by the institution.

During this session the Office of Postsecondary Education will provide a summary of the CCAMPIS program including the legislation, program services, and currently funded institutions.
