What's Covered

Support comes from the Student Government Association’s (SGA) childcare fund as well from the U.S. Dept of Education through the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program.

Licensed Childcare Facilities


Students who are using a childcare facility licensed/certified by the state are eligible for up to $2,400 through the CCAMPIS program. Payments are made directly to the childcare facility.

Due to a requirement of the federal grant, the student is responsible for acquiring a federal W-9 form with the Employer Identification Number (EIN) or appropriate Social Security number included. The W-9 form will need to be completed by the provider and submitted at the time the student fills out the online application.

Unlicensed Childcare

(SGA Funds)

The university recognizes there are many reasons from financial to logistical to cultural, to use some form of in-home childcare. This may be paid or unpaid care. The grants are awarded on general requirements above, with additional eligibility requirements and while semester funding is available.

Students who are using an unlicensed childcare provider may be eligible for an amount up to $500 through the SGA program.

The Verification Form needs to be submitted along with the online application prior to the request being processed. Payment will be made directly to the student either through direct depositor a check.

"I owe many thanks to the Phoenix Childcare Support Program for their support given to me during my time attending UW-Green Bay online. Without their grants, not only would I have the stress about finances, but I wouldn't have that time allowance to dedicate solely to my education. Both are invaluable when it comes to earning a bachelor's degree.

Thank you from myself, Amber, and my daughter, Leigh."
