Autism Now – Family Support Grants and Cash Subsidies
Raising a child with a developmental disability can come with more costs than raising a child without the same needs. Many states offer family support grants or cash subsidies to offset these expenses. Depending on the state, after establishing eligibility for this assistance, families might receive monthly cash benefits or one-off grants for specific needs.
The states below offer assistance to families supporting children with developmental disability. You can discover what kinds of family support grant or cash subsidy is available, as well as how to apply.
Due to the economic downturn, the number of states that offer a family support or cash subsidy has decreased in the last few. However, if your state is not listed, try contacting your local developmental disabilities organization and ask what types of financial supports are available.
