The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services has announced that Caregiver Support Services funds will be available for Fiscal Year 2016 beginning July 1.
Caregiver Support Services are available on a first-come, first served basis. Applications filed in previous fiscal years do not carry over; applicants must reapply each year.
To potentially qualify for funds, an individual must meet the state definition of intellectual and developmental disability and the individual’s primary caregiver must select a provider. Individuals could initially receive $500.
