Respite Funding

FOR CHILDREN (17 YEARS OLD AND UNDER) LIVING AT HOME

Respite funding can be used to pay for approved respite options such as; services of screened respite providers, residential respite, registered camps, community recreational programs, memberships and lessons. Respite Funding only reimburses services for the person being supported and cannot reimburse services for the whole family. The funding is for activities outside of school and work hours, and cannot be used as daycare expenses while families are at work. Respite funding is allocated to provide respite to parents/guardians and create greater opportunities for those supported to live actively and participate in community activities.

To qualify for respite funding a child must reside with parent/guardian and have a professional assessment (psychological assessment or psychoeducational assessment) indicating an Intellectual Disability.

To apply, please contact the Agency that provides services to the area in which you live.
