Family Caregiver Support Program

The Family Caregiver Support Program is support provided to the caregiver to assist with the care necessary for persons who are maintained in their home environment. Limited resources are available for the kinship portion of this program, which assists caregivers 55 years of age and older, who are raising a child 18 years or younger and are identified as being at-risk.

Participation Requirements:

  • Provide adequate care to a family member aged 60 or older so they may remain in a home environment for as long as possible.
  • Kinship provides for care of an at-risk child.
  • Complete and submit monthly expense form.
  • Provide proof of annual household income to determine continued financial eligibility.
  • All reimbursements are contingent upon prior approval as determined through the individual service plan process.

Follow-up period: The caregiver and care receiver are reassessed annually to determine continued eligibility.
