Child Care Reimbursement Program
This program is separate from turning in form D2 and 36 for financial aid. Forms D2 and 36 can be found on the financial aid forms webpage. These forms increase your school budget (amount you are allowed to be awarded) and financial aid will award additional funding if available.
The CCRP through WSU Tri-Cities reimburses students up to $300.00 for the first child and $150.00 for the second child. The student must be enrolled in at least six (6) WSU Tri-Cities campus credits (not DDP) and be using a state licensed day care provider. The child must live with the student applying for the program.
Each semester you would like coverage you need to submit an application. We do have a maximum number of students we can accept each term based on the amount of funds approved. This program is first come, first served as well as need based. Turn in your application as soon as you can.
Fall semester reimburses for September, October, November and December. Spring semester reimburses for January, February, March, and April. You have to apply for each semester you want to be in the program, acceptance one semester does not guarantee future acceptance.
Once accepted into the program, you will need to turn in a verification form each month by the 10th of the following month. For example, for September's reimbursement you must turn in the verification form by October 10th. Late verification forms will mean you are ineligible for reimbursement that month. The verification forms will be mailed to you upon acceptance in the program; they are not available online.
If you have any questions, please contact:
There are four pages to the application, please make sure to download all the pages and read all instructions, as incomplete applications will not be considered.
The daycare provider needs to fill out page three. Print off the appropriate form, have your provider fill it out and give it back to you to turn in. Click here if you need page three in Spanish.
