CCA Summer COVID-19 Grant funds available for eligible students for summer semester. Apply for the grant.
The Strengthening Working Families Initiative grant (“SWFI”), in partnership with the US Department of Labor, allows the Community College of Aurora to help parents access jobs in high demand industries (Healthcare, Information Technology, and Advanced Manufacturing), while addressing a common barrier parents face, childcare.
We pair the students with: A bridge program to prepare them for college-level courses; an Achievement coach to help them navigate challenges to the higher education process and expectations; A Childcare Navigator to address their childcare needs; and the Career Advisor to assist with the job placement process. All of these services are provided at little to no cost to the student. The Strengthening Working Families Initiative is funded by the US Department of Labor and Employment.
If you are interested in applying to become part of SWFI, please fill out this interest form.
