Cooperative agreements to USA state agencies to plan and establish respite care programs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for the establishment of respite services including training workers and assisting caregivers with gaining access to needed services.
Successful applicants will be required to establish or re-establish state and local coordinated Lifespan Respite Care systems to serve family caregivers regardless of the age, disability, or chronic condition of the care recipient. Grantees will also be required to develop and provide new and emergency respite services; train and recruit respite workers, including volunteers; and assist caregivers in gaining access to respite care services that meet the needs of both the caregiver and care recipient.
Eligible respite recipients include family members (including grandparents of any age who are primary caretakers of children or adults with special needs), foster parents, or others who are providing unpaid care to adults who require care to meet basic needs or prevent injury and to children who require care beyond that required to meet the basic needs of the child (collectively referred to as family members). Further, all programs must, from the outset, address the respite needs of all populations regardless of the age and/or disability/special needs of the care recipient. No phase-in or preference for specific age groups, disability categories, or populations will be permitted.
For explanations of Activities and Recommended Approaches, see pp. 8-9 of the NOFO in Attached Files below.
