Support for Grandparents
Our Grandparent Support program is open to grandparents and relatives age 55 or older who serve as caregivers for children 18 and younger, or for children of any age who have disabilities. Grandparents are assisted with caregiver training and child daycare, counseling, legal assistance, respite care, transportation, and supplemental services such as housing improvement and provision of medical supplies and services.
Preference is given to older persons with the greatest economic or social needs. Particular attention is given to low-income older individuals, low-income minority elders, individuals with limited English proficiency, and individuals residing in rural areas.
