Caregiver Grants offer caregivers and/or Grandparents Raising Grandchildren under the age of 18 an opportunity to refresh and renew away from their caregiving and grand parenting responsibilities.
Caregivers have used these grants to pay someone (a family member, friend or neighbor) to provide them with in-home respite so they can rest, take a class, visit friends or family out of town...giving them peace of mind to know their loved one is being cared for while they are away.
Similarly, grandparents have used monies through the grant to help pay for child care, camp fees, or additional household needs...giving them support during difficult times.
Grants can be used in many creative ways to meet the needs of caregivers and grandparents. Please contact the Information and Caregiver Resource Center at FCHCC for more details. Grants are approved based on availability of funds.
