HCC students may be eligible for a number of resources to help with child care costs:
Pell grants and student loans
If a student receives Pell and/or student loans and there is money remaining after paying tuition and book charges, that money can be transferred to the student's child care account to help cover child care expenses for the semester.
HCC Foundation Scholarship
While this scholarship covers HCC tuition, this funding supplements Pell and other sources to free up money that can be used for child care.
Career Program Achievers
If a student is eligible for CPA Services and accepted into the program, that student will receive educational stipends and book vouchers.
Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) is a federal grant program that enables HCC to support Pell-eligible student parents through awarding weekly child care stipends.
Child Care Subsidy
Child care subsidy (vouchers) from the Maryland State Department of Education (formerly administered by DSS). Information and applications are available at http://msde.maryland.gov/MSDE/divisions/child_care/subsidy.
