Pima Community College
Receives Over $1.1 Million for the
 US Department of Education Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS)
Pima Community College received the U.S. Department of Education Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) in the amount of $1,141,508. California Consulting Program Manager, Esther Landin, wrote the awarded application.

The goal of the CCAMPIS Program is to provide grants to institutions of higher education to assist the institutions in providing campus-based child care services to low-income students

The funding will go toward program staff, playground equipment, classroom equipment, learning materials, and supplies, and stipends to offset child care costs for student parents. 

PCC is partnering with Child-Parent Centers, United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, and Pima County to provide a comprehensive, state-approved Head Start program for as little as $0.50 per day for PCC student parents. 

Tucson is in the middle of what is considered a "child care desert" and the CCAMPIS program at PCC will help mitigate the regional impact that COVID-19 has had on child care centers by providing affordable on-campus child care. PCC will begin providing child care services in Spring 2022.
