Child Care Access Means Parents in School

Troy University Alabama Campuses Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS)

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program is authorized by the Higher Education Act and is a federal grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education to support student-parents. The goal of CCAMPIS is to increase access to post-secondary education to low-income parents by providing quality, affordable and accessible child care services while they further their education. This program supports the participation of low-income student-parents in postsecondary education through the provision of child care services to income-eligible Alabama Troy student-parents through financial support for on-campus child care services at the Coleman Center for Early Learning and Family Enrichment or predetermined (other options may be available at the discretion of the Project Coordinator) child care centers near one of the Troy Alabama campuses. Families who meet the requirements of the CCAMPIS Grant may receive a reduction in their monthly child care.

Eligibility for CCAMPIS funds does not guarantee space at the Coleman Center for Early Learning and Family Enrichment or predetermined child care centers near one of the Alabama Troy campuses. Contact each program directly for information on enrollment processes and space availability. Participation is limited. We are unable to assist all those who apply.
