What is the SAF Child Care Subsidy?

The Southeast Student Activity Fee (SAF) Child Care Subsidy is a financial assistance program for school-related childcare. This subsidy is for out-of-pocket childcare costs accrued while attending PCC classes on campus. Children may be subsidized from infancy to age 11, based on the student parent full-time (12 credits or more) or part-time (between 6 and 11 credits) enrollment status.

Student-parents must meet the following conditions to qualify for the SAF Subsidy:

  • PELL grant eligible through Financial Aid *If you are not eligible for Financial Aid due to your visa/immigration status, please contact us.
  • Taking at least 6 credits per term
  • Childcare provider must be licensed by the state
  • Grants will not be given to those students already receiving childcare assistance from other sources
