Respite Care Provider Grants

The Respite Care Provider Grants will be available twice a year to increase direct respite care services to existing and start-up programs that provide services to underserved populations. Priority is given to programs serving rural communities, Native American Tribes, Hispanic/Latino, African American, or Hmong families, Relatives as caregivers (i.e. Grandfamilies), and children and families in crisis (high risk for abuse and neglect). Other populations will be considered as well. A program is eligible to apply for this grant if they will be providing direct respite care in the next three months.  

Spring 2021 Grant Applications are due on May 17th.

The purpose of the CORE Grant Program is to expand the pool of trained respite care providers by hosting recruitment and outreach events, educate family caregivers about long-term care resources, including respite care, and collaborate with agencies that support family caregivers, including but not limited to ADRC’s, County CLTS, and CCOP staff, and Tribes.
