What’s Included in a Grant
The respite care grant includes a one time payment (up to $1000) to cover cost of services for respite care. The services funded through the grant program can be delivered through your current support provider (if applicable) or by one of our recommended highly skilled support providers in your area. (Subject to availability)
Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis. After submitting the application you will be contacted via email within 30-60 days. All applicants will be notified of their status.
Due to limited funding, there are a limited number of Grants available. The review committee will award grants based on available funding and need. The amount you can receive for respite care at home varies by service and your unique situation. We will organize an assessment to determine what services you are eligible for through our program.
Home and Community Care Support Services may also be available as a respite option in the community. We can check on your behalf and make sure you are receiving the most care available from your local government and community programs. This is available through our CCSP Community Care Support Program (Applications opening Soon).
Depending on the service needed, there are other qualifications that we will discuss with each applicant based on their unique situation.
