Does the institution have an on-site child care facility, partner with a local facility, and/or provide subsidies or financial support to help meet the child care needs of students, faculty, and staff?:

A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

Through its benefits packages, employees may opt to create flexible spending account (FSA). FSAs are individual accounts set up for the employee and funded with excess College benefit credits and/or before-tax dollars.
The tax-effective use of College benefit credits and before-tax dollars results in a lower costs to the employee for these expenses.

Dependent care FSAs may only be used for care needed so that the employee and/or his/her spouse can work outside the home. Internal Revenue Code defines eligible costs as those incurred for the care of:
■ A dependent child under age 13 or a dependent child of any age who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care and who qualifies as the employee's tax dependent; or
■ Someone the employee claims as a tax dependent because of a physical or mental inability to care for himself or herself, such as an elderly parent or a disabled spouse.
