CAA recognizes the need among members for childcare support during the Annual Conference. In our effort to better meet these needs, CAA now offers grants of up to $250 per family.

Grants are available for CAA members who are registered for the conference and will bring their child to the conference, or who will incur extra care-giving expenses while away from their dependents.

APPLY FOR A CHILDCARE GRANT

Deadline to apply: January 5, 2020

Grant funding is limited and grants will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. (If you signed up for the now-canceled onsite care with Kiddie Corp, you will be given priority.) The grants will be given as a reimbursement for expenses up to $250 upon submission of receipts or invoices.

Examples of allowable expenses

  • Childcare expenses incurred on-site at the conference.
  • Daycare above and beyond what is normally scheduled because member is attending the conference (for example, overtime at a daycare center, cost of a sitter, etc.)
  • Travel expenses incurred in bringing a caregiver/family member to supervise your child at the conference or at your home.
  • Travel expenses incurred in bringing a child to a caregiver/family member.

Note: Care must occur during the conference dates. Attendees are responsible for making their own arrangements. CAA does not sanction or recommend childcare providers and does not assume responsibility or liability for childcare services of any sort. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to thoroughly investigate all childcare providers.

Expenses not eligible for reimbursement

  • Normally scheduled childcare expenses in your home city.
  • Toys, and tickets to museums, amusement parks, etc.
  • Travel or other expenses related to the attendee’s participation in the meeting, conference registration, meals, or other expenses the attendee would already be incurring by attending the meeting.

Reimbursement procedure

  • Reimbursement forms will be distributed to grantees upon notification, the completed PDF must accompany a scan of receipts.
  • Recipients of a grant must submit receipts for reimbursable expenses by email to Mira Friedlaender, mfriedlaender@collegeart.org with the subject line “Child Care Reimbursement”, by March 5, 2020
  • Reimbursements will be distributed within 3-4 weeks of CAA’s receipt of complete documentation.

Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis. The deadline to apply for the grant is January 5, 2020.
