Parenting on Campus

CCAMPIS GRANT

The Center for Women and Families has received a $60,000 grant in October 2009 to help our students’ subsidize their child care costs. The average cost of full-time child care in Cedar City totals $400-500 per child. With the grant in place, for the parents that apply we can pay anywhere from 50 to 90 percent of their day care costs. Parents’ subsidy amount is based on a sliding scale that takes into account their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and the number of credits they are currently taking. Other factors do contribute but are not as substantial. Parents, in return,  are asked to volunteer 4 hours per month at their family’s childcare facility or another facility that is preapproved by the CWF Director, remain in good financial standing with their family’s childcare facility, participate once a month in a parenting workshop or program offered by the Center for Women and Families and maintain a 2.3 GPA (or better) for continued eligibility next academic year.
