Paying for Childcare

Paying for childcare can be challenging. Northwestern offers several programs to help faculty, staff, and students. Please visit the program pages for more information about individual programs. 

Temporary COVID-19 Caregiving Grant

Northwestern has created a Temporary COVID-19 Caregiving Grant to help mitigate the unprecedented burdens COVID-19 has imposed on caregivers. This temporary, emergency response program provides taxable grants to help qualifying Evanston and Chicago full-time faculty and staff offset the costs of caregiving for their dependent children or dependent adults and seniors during the remainder of the academic year. This progressive-income tiered program has been structured to ensure that funds go to those who need them most with as low administrative hurdle as possible. 

Programs administered by Work/Life & Family resources
