Service Details


The Family Support Grant (FSG) is a state program that helps families of children and young adults with disabilities to pay for disability-related items and services. The goal is to promote family well-being and to prevent the child having to move out of their home. The money can be used for disability-specific costs that are not covered by any insurance (state or private insurance).

Examples of how the money may be used include:
* Day care
* Educational services not already covered by the Department of Education
* Medical costs not covered by insurance
* Medications not covered by insurance
* Respite care services
* Specialized clothing
* Specialized dietary needs
* Specialized equipment

More information


* Families of children with a certified disability, under age 21 years, living in their biological or adoptive home
* Children currently residing in a facility who would return to their family home if a grant were awarded
