The Department of Education (ED) listed applications for new awards for the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPS) Program in the Federal Register on April 16, 2019. The CCAMPS program application is open to postsecondary institutions who are interested in providing campus-based childcare services—or contracting with off-campus providers—for low-income student parents. The Program seeks to support student parents by providing an array of affordable and high-quality childcare options that will better enable them to continue their studies.
ED is prioritizing applicants located within Opportunity Zones, which reflects a targeted collaboration across federal agencies to spur investment in impoverished areas. We encourage CLPHA members to contact postsecondary institutions in their local communities about applying for this opportunity. The deadline for submitting applications is May 31, 2019.
