Childcare applications will be accepted by Financial Aid beginning Nov. 1 for the Spring 2023 semester.
The North Carolina General Assembly appropriates funds for childcare services for student parents in community colleges. This is approved for one semester at the time. Single parents receive first priority. Applicants must have demonstrated financial need; be enrolled at least half time in a college transfer, technical, or vocational degree or diploma program at Craven Community College; and be willing to complete a FAFSA. Applicants must not be receiving childcare funds from the Department of Social Services. Child care must be provided by a legal childcare provider. Interested students must complete a Child Care Program application and submit a copy of their notification from the Department of Social Services, documenting their application status. Students must also maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress according to Craven Community College.
If awarded, applicants will be notified by email to schedule an appointment with the Childcare Coordinator to review the award and sign the agreement forms.
