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 parents with low-income 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 parents with low-income 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 awarded is dependent upon the student’s need and availability of funds.
