Since fall, 2009, the Center for Women and Families has helped administer a grant that assists students with child care needs. The purpose of the program is to help subsidize child care costs for low income parents of young children that are trying to go back to school or complete school. The grant covers anywhere from 30% to 70% of an individual's child care costs with a maximum monthly award of $250 per family. The amount a student parent can receive is based largely on a sliding scale which takes into account the number of credits the student is taking for the current semester and the parent's adjusted gross inco me. Other factors which are taken into consideratiion include being a single parent; if both parents are students, and family medical issues. Parents desiring to participate in the child care grant must apply each semester. Deadlines will be posted on the application and in the announcements column on this page.
