Helping Women to Succeed in Higher Education: Supporting Student-Parents with Child Care

Proposes building on the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program to structure an institutional grant program that better supports the availability of high-quality child care for parents pursuing postsecondary credentials (student-parents). Compared with the existing federal program, the proposed program would be larger and better targeted to address the substantial needs of low income student-parents. The program would encourage enrollment practices and educational investments that benefit the individual as well as the overall economy.
