Funding Available for Child Care

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) initiative offers assistance to eligible Pima Community College student-parents. By assisting in eliminating barriers to high quality child care, CCAMPIS will aid students in completing their education. Thanks to federal funding, CCAMPIS subsidizes the cost of childcare at the Desert Vista Child Care Center or other Arizona Department of Economic Security-licensed child care programs that have an agreement with the college.
