CCAMPIS is a federally funded grant that provides eligible Northeast State student parents with childcare subsidies and coaching services to licensed providers that deliver childcare services, focusing primarily on full-day care for infants through pre-school ages. A sliding fee scale is used to determine student parent cost to the provider. Northeast State does not provide on-site or drop-off child care services.

  • Completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 
  • Pell Grant eligible as determined by FAFSA

  • Remain in good academic standing with financial aid

Funds are limited and not everyone who applies receives an award. Student parents may be placed on a waiting list. Student parents who have earned bachelor's degrees are not eligible to apply.

Sliding Fee

Northeast State developed a sliding fee schedule based on the student parent’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC), as determined by FAFSA. Subsidies will be calculated as a percentage of the fee for which the student parent is responsible. The parent fee is determined by the childcare center after all other sources of aid are applied (social services, provider-sponsored discounts, etc.).

Sliding Fee Scale for CCAMPIS Subsidies

Expected Family Contribution (EFC) CCAMPIS Subsidy (% of Parent Fee Owed as Determined by Childcare Center)
0 – 1999 90%
2000 – 3999 80%
4000 – 5846  *or maximum Pell Grant EFC 70%




CCAMPIS funds are provided for the fall and spring semesters and during winter break. Summer subsidies may be available. All subsidies are provided directly to the childcare center. Student fees are paid by the student directly to the childcare center in accordance to their policies. Students are responsible for all other center fees (application, supplies, field trips, late fees, etc.). 

CCAMPIS subsidies cannot be used to hold/reserve childcare slots.  

Provider Requirements

  • Meet the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TNDHS) definition of “daycare center”, which offers care to thirteen or more children
  • Licensed childcare center by TNDHS, with a 2 or 3-Star Quality rating
  • Have a signed partnering agreement on file with Northeast State Community College

 A list of childcare centers can be found at accweb.dhs.tn.gov/.  

 A childcare center’s Quality rating status and compliance history report should always be verified through the TNDHS website.

Before subsidies are provided, student parents and childcare providers:

  • Must sign a participant agreement stipulating that they understand program eligibility and performance requirements, as well the policies and procedures of the childcare center.
