CAPS Bridge Funding Program
The Nana Grants CAPS Bridge Funding Program provides supplemental child care funding for low-income single mothers attending a HOPE-eligible college or university in Georgia. Georgia’s CAPS program supports early education goals by assisting low income families with the cost of child care while they work, go to school or training, or participate in other work-related activities.
Even with CAPS, a single mother may have out of pocket costs, such as paying a Family Fee and/or the difference between what the provider charges weekly and the amount CAPS pays the provider. Nana Grants covers up to $50 per week per family for qualifying CAPS recipients to help offset those out-of-pocket costs. Nana Grants’ CAPS Bridge Funding allows single mothers to balance school, work and parenting. Many of our mothers are one car repair or doctor’s visit away from financial insolvency. Nana Grants helps them stay on track for graduation
