SUMMER CHILDCARE REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM 2020 Revised GUIDELINES
The Summer Childcare Reimbursement Program is available to employees in the Confidential, Trades & Crafts, Public Services, Clerical and Supervisory bargaining units. This reimbursement program is funded by the County of San Luis Obispo and administered through the San Luis Obispo County Employees’ Association (SLOCEA). The Association’s Summer Childcare Reimbursement Committee (SCRC) is responsible for administering the program on behalf of the Association. The program is intended to assist County employees with summer childcare expenses for children five years old who have completed kindergarten through age 14 who have completed eighth grade. Requests for children over 14 years old with special needs will be considered on an individual basis when funds exist.
- County employee must be in the Confidential, Trades & Crafts, Public Services, Clerical or Supervisory bargaining unit.
- Permanent employees working at least 20 hours a week.
- Eligible employees are: Parents or legal guardians of children 5 years of age who have completed kindergarten through age 14, who have completed the 8th grade and are receiving childcare that enables the employee to work for the County. In addition, special requests or needs for children over 14 years old will be considered on an individual basis when funds exist. **2020 COVID-19 conditions expand this qualification to include children under 5 years old and expand reimbursable expenses to include educational tutoring services.
- Family gross earnings last calendar year did not exceed $79,950. However, if you feel you may qualify due to recent changes in your financial situation, you are encouraged to apply. (Your most recent federal tax return and W2 form will be requested)
