The Faculty Child Care Assistance Program (FCCAP) provides a salary supplement to eligible faculty to offset qualified child care expenses.

New and continuing faculty must apply to this program by November 11, 2022. Awards are not automatically renewed. Applications for the fiscal year (September 1 – August 31) must be submitted annually. 

Applications will be accepted after November 11, 2022, only from faculty newly hired or newly eligible (i.e., since the previous deadline) or to amend existing awards (e.g., for additional children). Awards granted after November 11, 2022, will be prorated to the nearest subsequent month.

If granted, the award will begin on the first of the month after the application has been submitted. The award amount will be prorated for the remainder of the fiscal year.

Note: Faculty whose household has federal taxable gross earnings less than $200,000 should apply to the Child Care Subsidy Grant Program (CCSG) before applying to the Faculty Child Care Assistance Program (FCCAP).  CCSG offers eligible applicants the opportunity to receive financial assistance through their Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Accounts as pre-tax dollars.  Faculty members enrolled in both programs will have their final FCCAP award amount adjusted to include the additional Child Care Subsidy Grant assistance provided. Stanford allows one CCSG and one FCCAP grant per family per year.
