Campaign to Increase Child Care Access for Today’s Students Gains More Support

WASHINGTON – Today, Higher Learning Advocates sent a letter to the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education that shows growing support from 54 organizations for HLA’s ongoing efforts to increase funding for the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program.

The letter urges Congress to boost CCAMPIS funding to $500 million – the amount needed to provide roughly 100,000 more parenting college students with child care assistance to continue their higher education and complete their academic programs.
