COVID-19 Information for UC Berkeley Grad Students with Dependents

Students with dependents are eligible for fifty (50) hours of subsidized back-up care if their child’s school is closed, or their regular caregiver is not available. Students must be pre-registered for the program. Register here.
Additionally, until April 30, 2020 at 2 p.m. PT, you also have the option to secure care using your own personal network — a neighbor, friend, or babysitter — and receive a Crisis Care reimbursement of $100 per day.
Important: For the Crisis Care option, click here and select “Use It” to be directed to the reimbursement form. Any use of the program will count as eight (8) hours toward your standard allotment.
