The AMS and the MAA will provide approximately 60 reimbursement grants of US\$250 per family to help with the cost of child care for a number of registered participants at 2017 JMM. The funds may be used for child care that frees a parent to participate more fully in the JMM.
Registration for the meeting as a participant is required to apply for this program. To apply, please follow these instructions:
Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis until November 18, 2016.
Final decisions on recipients will be made on or before November 28, 2016. All grant funds will provided in the form a check which will be issued at the meetings. Details on this process will be sent to all recipients before the
meetings, but please note that each recipient will be required to submit a completed W-9 form prior to the meetings to receive a check.
Please note that all recipients are solely responsible for arranging child care. They may use this grant for child care expenses from local resources in Atlanta, or for any other form of child care (such as hiring a nanny at
home, bringing a caregiver with you to Atlanta, etc.). This gives them the freedom to use these funds in the way that is most useful to their families.
The JMM will not offer any on-site child care services in Atlanta (as in some previous years), nor will the AMS and MAA make recommendations for child care providers. For convenience, the following are some links and phone numbers to local child-care service providers:
All recipients will need to make their own arrangements if they choose to use a local child care provider.
