The JHU COVID-19 Caregiving Relief Fund, or CCRF, offers financial assistance to eligible employees and students incurring new caregiving, educational support, and technology expenses as a direct result of the pandemic. To learn more about eligibility and acceptable expenses, visit the Family and Caregiving Programs page of the Benefits & Worklife website.
To begin the application process, employees should log into the Benefits portal by clicking on myChoices Health and Life Enrollment, and then "View My Benefits" from the Benefits & Worklife website. If you are eligible, you will see a link to the application on your home page.
You will be asked to verify whether your claim relates to a dependent child or adult immediate family member. If your dependent child is not already on file, you will need to submit dependent verification with your application. Information on acceptable documents can be found here.
