SUCCESS Sliding Scale Child Care Vouchers

Succeed Using Child Care and Educational Student Services (SUCCESS)

What is the SUCCESS child care voucher program?

Funded by the US Department of Education, the federal Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) provides funding for child care sliding scale vouchers and support for qualified TWU students on the Denton campus through the TWU Succeed Using Child Care and Educational Student Services (SUCCESS). The SUCCESS program recognizes that child care is a major obstacle for student parents.  This grant leverages university and local resources to help students find a child care center that best fits their needs and budget. Additionally, SUCCESS provides personalized support to positively impact persistence and graduation.

How does SUCCESS work?

Students who meet the eligibility requirements of the grant may submit an application.  Based on available funding and student need, a portion of child care costs will be paid directly to the child care center.  The greater the student’s financial need, the greater the  amount of the voucher --up to 60% with maximum monthly vouchers not to exceed $444 for one child or $844 for two or more. These sliding scale vouchers are offered for fall and spring semesters. Summer vouchers will be provided based on funding availability. CARE will distribute the vouchers to the pre-approved child care centers based on student choice.
