Lifespan Respite Subsidy Program

The Lifespan Respite Subsidy Program application may be filled out by caregivers who reside in their own home and care for an individual with a disability of any age. This program provides up to $125/month that may be directed toward the cost of respite.

There is additional funding available to families that are applying for or are already approved for the Lifespan Respite Subsidy funds.  Please complete the Exceptional Circumstances/Needs application and if approved it can be worth up to $1,000 a contract year to help pay for outings, camps or additional Respite each month.
