Childcare Assistance Grant


The Childcare Assistance Grant is a program funded by the State of North Carolina to assist community college students with their childcare needs. At Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC), the Childcare Assistance Committee reviews and evaluates applications and recommends recipients.  Funds are administered by the Family Resource Center.

CPCC Employees are not eligible to apply for childcare assistance through this program. Work study is considered a form of financial aid and recipients of this assistance may apply.

In past years, the college has generally received an amount of money which could assist about 20 students each year. Students accepted into this program have typically been awarded assistance with 70 percent of their childcare costs and the remainder of the cost was the student’s responsibility.
