The Cost of child care is often largest expense of your budget and is often a higher cost of food, housing, transportation and other living expenses.
This grant provides reimbursable financial assistance for student mothers with child care expenses.
This grant is focused on providing financial assistance to single parent students that have childcare expenses related to the daily care and supervision of their child(ren).
Single mothers can apply for and be awarded funds to use toward eligible childcare expenses incurred from August 1 – December 2023. Funds can cover infant and toddler child care, pre-school/pre-K programs, care on school holidays, school-age summer day camps/programs, and school-age before/after school care.
