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 90% with maximum monthly vouchers not to exceed $670 per child. 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.
Due to a recent increase in students seeking child care assistance, we are now at capacity for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please apply if you wish to be put on our current waitlist. The CARE Office has additional resources to support student parents beyond our SUCCESS Program. If you would like to further discuss these resources, please email Nicole Silva. Thank you!
