If you think you may qualify, please call the Office of Human Resources for further details.

Low-Income Subsidy for Dependent Care: A college-paid subsidy of from $458 to $1,831 per year is available to help offset the cost of dependent care. You may be eligible for the subsidy if your family income is less than $45,207, you file a joint or head-ofhousehold tax return, and you have a dependent care flexible spending account of $100 or more. The family income limit is increased periodically to reflect inflation. If you are employed in a regular position of half-time or more, you are eligible to apply for the dependent care subsidy. Staff who hold limited-term positions which exceed three years may also apply for this subsidy.
