Family care program

To help GEM members with young children attending the summer workshop, a new Family Care Grant is available for all GEM participants to apply. This grant is intended to help offset the cost of childcare, though recipients will be responsible for arranging their own childcare. We anticipate to award eight grants of up to $400 to each applicant. This might include babysitting costs at the hotel, or contributions towards the daily expenses of a spouse/relative attending the meeting to care for the child. The recipient will need to supply a receipt or other proof of payment to obtain the reimbursement.
