UCC receives childcare grant

Umpqua Community College has selected to receive a $350,496 four-year grant to improve access to childcare for low-income students.

The highly competitive Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) grant was awarded to 58 colleges nationwide; UCC is one of only three in Oregon (with Portland and Lane community colleges) to receive the award.

UCC will use the grant to fund its UCC ACCESS Program (Affordable Child Care Entry for Student Success), which helps low-income and military-connected students with childcare needs. The program allows parents to pay for childcare at UCC’s Ford Childhood Enrichment Center on a sliding scale, and funds a summer childcare program and additional academic help for student parents.

“Childcare costs more than college tuition and can be a major barrier to parents attending college,” explained Susan Taylor, director of grants and planned giving for the UCC Foundation. “We’re thrilled to be able to continue UCC’s commitment to student parents with this additional funding.”

This is the second time UCC has received a CCAMPIS grant. In 2009, the grant was used to provide summer childcare on campus for students attending summer term.

Nationally, the CCAMPIS program supports the participation of low-income parents in college education through campus-based childcare services. CCAMPIS is a component of the Higher Education Act of 1965.

For more information on the grant, contact Susan Taylor at 541-440-7784. For information on the childcare options available at UCC, call the Ford Childhood Enrichment Center at 541-440-4650.
