Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS)
EKU is a recipient of Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) funding. This federal grant partially or fully funds quality childcare for EKU students who are eligible for Federal Pell Grants, as well as improves campus services for parents.
What Services Does the CCAMPIS Grant Provide?
CCAMPIS Grant funds support the EKU Student Child Care Assistance Program (SCCAP). SCCAP provides financial assistance for low-income parents at EKU's main campus in Richmond, as well as regional campuses in Corbin and Manchester. Payments are made directly from EKU to high-quality, outsourced childcare providers that meet licensing regulations and are accredited or seeking accreditation.
Awards are generated on a sliding scale - parents with lower earnings will have higher percentages of childcare subsidized. Part-time students are eligible for half the amount received by full-time students.
