Child Care Options

Free Childcare Vouchers


HCTC has partnered with local child care providers to offer a limited number of vouchers to assist HCTC students with the cost of child care while they are working and/or in class. This program is provided through a grant from the Department of Education's child care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program, and HCTC will verify participants, eligibility based on
income, household size, first-generation or college ready status, and credit hour load. At the beginning of each semester, the Academic Program Coordinator will interview and select eligible participants.

During the selection notification and participant agreement execution, the Coordinator will clearly explain the requirements and expectations to participants as described in the agreement and listed below:

  • participate in at least a minimum one parental involvement activity per semester (examples: volunteering for a school field trip, reading a story to children during designated Story Hour, or serving on a parent board or taking parenting education classes.)
  • meet with an advisor each semester to schedule appropriate courses
  • access services from the HCTC Success Zone
  • complete a Graduation Plan
  • apply to the Ready to Work Program
  • remain in good academic standing
  • maintain at least a half-time course load (6 credit hours)
  • complete a FAFSA for the following year in a timely manner
  • seek scholarship funds
  • seek assistance from the Coordinator to quickly resolve issues with financial aid, course work, or personal issues
  • notify the Coordinator of any significant changes that would disqualify the student from participation in the project

A wait list will be created for all eligible participants. All CCAMPIS project requirements, such as parental involvement, academic advising, academic standing, course load, will be assessed each semester to ensure continued eligibility. The student will lose his or her slot if he or she becomes ineligible. The next eligible student parent will be chosen from the wait list if this occurs. The Academic Project Coordinator will provide information regarding the above in addition to ensuring that participants understand the requirements and the sliding fee scale.

If you are interested in being considered for a child care voucher, please provide the information requested below and submit. Your contact information will be added to HCTC's Admissions Office Waiting List to be forwarded to the new Coordinator, Heather Watts, in January. The Director will contact you to collect official application information, so your application can be evaluated according to the eligibility requirements mentioned above.
