NRSA Childcare Support Funding

The NIH announced that it will fund childcare support requests up to $2,500 per budget period for full-time NRSA fellows. Among the conditions associated with the funds are:

  • The childcare provided must be by a licensed childcare provider;
  • Yale must retain supporting documentation (e.g., proof provider is licensed); and
  • Funds are restricted and cannot be re-budgeted without prior approval of the NIH.

For non-NIH childcare reimbursement requests, requestors must follow the sponsor specific guidelines.
The childcare reimbursement is considered income and is taxable; recipients of this reimbursement should consult a tax advisor regarding how this reimbursement may impact their personal tax situation.

These funds can be requested during the application process or as a supplement. Instructions on how to apply for these funds are available in NIH NOT OD 21-074. Please note:

  1. The Department Business Office (DBO) is responsible for retaining all related childcare costs documentation
  2. The DBO will need to enter a one-time payment through Workday in order to get the reimbursement processed utilizing the appropriate pay component and spend category in table below
  3. The DBO will need to enter the pay component PDF Child Care or Graduate Student Child Care. Note: The PDF Child Care pay component is not yet available in Workday. If processing PDF Child Care, you must forward the information to (please use this email for YSM and non-YSM requests) for processing.

Once the reimbursement is paid out in the month it has been entered, it will appear at the end of the year on a 1099 or 1042.
