For States to receive a federal grant to implement a Lifespan Respite Program, they must compete for funds by completing an application to be submitted to the Administration for Community Living (ACL). The Lifespan Respite law requires very specific information be included in the application. Compiling this information for the application will require research, documentation, and planning, which presents opportunities for state respite coalition, Aging and Disability Resource Center, and state agency collaboration early in the planning process. This fact sheet provides details on what information is required by the applicant as well as suggestions for how each partner could be most helpful with any or all of the application requirements.  Additional requirements may be included in each Funding Opportunity Announcement from ACL.
