You might use a grant to pay someone (a family member, friend or neighbor) to provide in-home respite so you can rest, take a class, or visit friends or family out of town, knowing that your loved one is being cared for while you are away. You might request funds to cover the extra costs of trips for medical appointments, supplies not covered by insurance, or other expenses.
As a grandparent, you might use a grant to help pay for child care, camp fees, enrichment activities, or other extra costs.
Grants are meant to ease the financial burden of caregiving. Funds are granted based on availability.
