Does the institution have an on-site child care facility, partner with a local facility, and/or provide subsidies or financial support to help meet the child care needs of students, faculty, and staff?:

A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

The Estrella Mountain Community College child care assistance award program is a program designed to supplement the costs of childcare for students attending Estrella Mountain. Students must use a third party child care provider that is licensed/certified by the Department of Economic Security or Arizona Department of Health Services. The Award will supplement the cost of child care for children from birth – 6 years of age. The child care assistance award program is only a supplement and does not pay for child care costs in its entirety. Students are responsible for selecting and paying their licensed provider.

Who can apply for the Child Care Assistance Award Program?

EMCC students who can demonstrate a financial need and are enrolled for a minimum of three credit hours may apply. The award amount is based on the number of credits which students are enrolled and the number children in daycare. Students may use the award program in conjunction with other forms of child care assistance such as DES. However, the award amount that a student may receive will be decreased. Students must be enrolled at Estrella Mountain in order to receive this award.
