MN Child Care Grant

This is a great Grant based program to help subsidize the expense of child care costs.  If you have a question or need help determining if you are eligible, students should contact the SPSC Program Coordinator to discuss the Child Care Grant Program.  The SPSC Coordinator can help you get started and connected with a staff person in the Financial Aid office to start the application process, plus answer any questions you have along the way. 

Minnesota Post-secondary Child Care Grant Program

Minnesota residents who have children 12 years of age or younger may be eligible for child care assistance. Eligible students must be Minnesota residents pursuing their first bachelor's degree. Those receiving Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) benefits or who have already attended post-secondary institutions for the equivalent of four full-time years are not eligible. The grant amount is determined by the size and income of the student's family.

Additional information and application materials are available in the Financial Aid Office. Students who are receiving MFIP benefits may want to contact their county social services office to find out if they are eligible for child care assistance through the county.
