The Children’s Center at Mesa Community College is pleased to announce the awarding of the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Grant for another four years. This grant is designed to assist Pell Recipient student parents in completing their degree at community colleges and universities by providing onsite child care services. The Children’s Center at MCC has been the recipient of this grant since 2005. The money received by the Children’s Center, approximately $56,000/year for four years, will be used to assist student parents in paying for their childcare tuition allowing them to focus on their educational goals.
The competition for the CCAMPIS Grant this year was very intense. Approximately 240 two-year and four-year institutions from across the country applied for the CCAMPIS Grant with only 58 funded. MCC and Phoenix College were the only two institutions funded in the state of Arizona. Other institutions that have been past recent recipients were not selected.
For specific questions about the CCAMPIS Grant or the Children’s Center please visit the Children's Center website, or call 480-461-7082.
