Faculty Child Care Assistance Program

The Faculty Child Care Assistance Program (FCCAP) is an expansion of the Junior Faculty Child Care Assistance Program instituted in 2007.  Provost Etchemendy has said, “Expanding the child care assistance program is another step in ensuring that a faculty career at Stanford is a family friendly career.”

The program is open to full-time assistant, associate and full professors in the tenure, non-tenure, and Medical Center lines, and provides financial assistance for child care to families with children age five and under.  Spouses or registered same-sex domestic partners must be working at least 30 hours per week, or be disabled, a full-time student, or looking for work (if married to or a partner of newly-hired faculty).  It is available to Stanford University benefits-eligible faculty only.  Awards are based on annual family adjusted gross income of less than $199,999.  The amount awarded ranges from $5,000 to $20,000, based on one child five or younger.  If a family has more than one child younger than five, the total award is increased by $1,000.  The awards are disbursed through reimbursement for child care expenses and are taxable income.
