What are State Respite Coalitions and how do they differ from State Lifespan Respite Programs?

Most State Respite Coalitions
are grassroots membership organizations composed of state and local, public and private organizations, which represent individuals with disabilities or chronic conditions of all ages; family caregivers; community and faith-based organizations and respite, social service and health care providers. Most often their activities are focused on advocacy, networking, and public education. Some coalitions also provide training and respite vouchers. They may be run by volunteers or paid staff. Most exist as informal structures, while others are formalized within or as 501(c)(3) nonprofit entities. 

State Lifespan Respite Programs are run by a designated state government lead agency, which works in collaboration with a state respite coalition and an Aging and Disability Resource Center. Their purpose is to implement statewide systems of coordinated, community-based respite for family caregivers caring for individuals with special needs of all ages. State Lifespan Respite grantees may assign some Lifespan Respite activities to State Respite Coalitions for purposes of the grant or the State Respite Coalition may act in an advisory or advocacy capacity for the grantee.
