The Family Reimbursement Grant is a NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) funded program that financially assists families and provides reimbursement funding for goods and services, recreation opportunities and respite not otherwise funded through other sources or affordable to care for a family member with a developmental disability. Families are reimbursed for expenses they have paid out of pocket. Requests must be directly related to the needs of an individual with an intellectual or developmental disability.
The grant serves people with developmental disabilities of all ages who live with a family member. At Living Resources, we support individuals in the following counties; Albany, Fulton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, and Washington. Individuals living independently, or in a certified setting are not eligible. To apply, individuals must be eligible for OPWDD services and provide their Letter of Eligibility.
