IHRC grants

The Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center in the University of Delaware's College of Arts and Sciences is offering three categories of grant support this year.

Flexible Spending Accounts are voluntary accounts through which UD employees can set aside pretax dollars to cover out-of-pocket health care and day care expenses. 

The maximum annual amount that can be contributed is now $2,500 per employee for the Health Care Account and $5,000 per family for the Dependent Day Care Account. (This is a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).) Visit the Office of Human Resources website for details about FSAs. 

The Human Resources staff is available to help with any questions about FSA enrollment. Employees can reach a benefits representative by emailing hrhelp@udel.edu.
