Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) is receiving grant money to help students who need child care.
The U.S. Department of Education issued the grant for more than $210,000. The grant is for low-income students who receive Pell Grants that need help with the cost of child care.
PVCC is partnering with the daycare center in the Piedmont Family YMCA at the Jefferson School City Center.
"Well sometimes attending college is a juggling act. You have a family to support, you perhaps have a job and you are attending college too. Affordable child care is really important to have," says PVCC Media Relationships Director Anita Showers. "Our aim is to have it available for our Spring 2014 semester that begins in January."
PVCC was one of 58 colleges in the U.S. to receive this grant.
