In addition to a few short questions, the application will require you to upload:

1. Verification of Colorado Child Care Assistance (CCCAP). CCCAP assists low-income Colorado residents by paying a portion of their child care costs. We ask that all applicants apply for this community assistance to help increase the affordability of their child care and to help supplement this scholarship program.
