We know that childcare is going to be even more complicated this semester. Don't be afraid to apply for assistance.

Do you qualify for childcare assistance?

With some schools doing "remote learning", we know it can complicate your education. You may qualify for $500 per month in Childcare Assistance. The funding is available to independent parents, meaning that you not claimed by your parents for tax purposes. You must be enrolled in at least six credit hours per semester to qualify and in a degree program (Continuing Education programs are not eligible). Don't let childcare stop you from pursuing your education.

Other qualifications include:

  • Not be receiving child care funding assistance from any other source (e.g. Department of Social Services)
  • Be a North Carolina resident (funds cannot pay for child care provided outside of North Carolina)
  • Have at least one child under the age of twelve
  • Demonstrate financial need by completing a FAFSA for the 2020-2021 academic year
  • Be enrolled in a degree or eligible diploma program
  • Maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA or be enrolled in first semester at BCCC
  • Have applied for assistance through the local Department of Social Services and either ineligible for services or currently on the waiting list
