Description of Service
FCSP is funded through both the state and federal regulations. Both programs focus on financial reimbursement to the caregiver when needed supplies and respite care have been purchased. Consumers in this program need two or more activities of daily living impairments to qualify. The federal program also provides for grandparents over age sixty caring for their grandchildren who are developmentally disabled. The grandchildren must be under age 18.

The state program requires the caregiver, who must be an adult family member or individual, to reside in the same household as the older adult. The federal program does not require caregiver and care receiver to live in the same household and they do not have to be related.
Reimbursement amounts for both programs are based on household income.
