  • Child Care Assistance Grant for DCC Students

    Those who are enrolled as traditional students at Danville Community College are eligible to apply for the Child Care Assistance Grant. The grant is from the DCC Educational Foundation and offers up to 40% off the weekly rate. Students can also apply for child care assistance with their local Department of Social Services to help pay for childcare. These are two amazing opportunities to help students afford child care and pursue their education at Danville Community College.
