CCAMPIS - Child Care Support

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) is an amazing opportunity for parents who are also pursuing certificates/degrees at Green River College. This award supplements tuition for your child to attend state qualified childcare providers.

How will this help you and your child? 

  • Work toward achieving your academic goals and future economic security knowing your child is well taken care of and close by. 
  • Get your studying out of the way during the day so you can be a parent full-time when you go home.
  • The flexibility of our programs allows your child to stay in their current childcare program or you may choose your own provider so your child will be in the best of hands while you study.

Priority For Families Who Are 

Funding for the Child Care Assistance Program is limited to student parents with financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid based on your FAFSA application. We continue to re-assess and evaluate our funding levels throughout the quarter trying to meet the needs of as many student parents as we are able.

Disbursment

Funds are disbursed to students via direct deposit through the  GRC Student Financial Aid Portal after 10th day of the quarter.   The students will receive funds after their application was approved. 

The Child Care Assistance Program covers 3 full calendar months each quarter, regardless of the first/last day of the academic quarter, if child care costs were accrued.
