What is CCAMPIS?
The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Project, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, supports the participation of low-income parents in the post-secondary education system through the provision of campus-based child care services. The goal of CCAMPIS is to increase access to post-secondary education for low-income parents by providing quality, affordable and accessible child care services. The CCAMPIS Project pays a portion of each participant’s child care directly to the Georgia State University Child Development Program. The amount of the award is dependent upon student need and availability of funds.
