Click on a marker to apply for your State's Respite Voucher Program.

Please note that you must be a resident of the state to be eligible to apply. Each state has its own eligibility criteria. 

Respite Voucher Programs, also known as stipend, grant, or reimbursement programs, make funds available through self-direction to help family caregivers pay for respite care. Such programs empower family caregivers by giving them control in selecting, hiring, and if they choose, training their own respite providers. In some states, payments can also be made directly to the respite provider or agency chosen by the family caregiver.

The voucher programs on this map are funded through the Lifespan Respite Care program or are state-funded. There may be other programs in the state that pay for respite through self-directed respite vouchers, stipends, reimbursement or grant programs for specific populations, such as the National Family Caregiver Support Program, Medicaid waivers, or the Veteran Directed Care Program. For more information about these programs, visit How to Pay for Respite Care or connect with your State Respite Coalition or Lifespan Respite Program for more information.

Note: Not all of the voucher programs listed on the map receive funds from the Federal Lifespan Respite Care Program. Of those that currently do not receive federal Lifespan Respite Care Program funds, Connecticut (Alzheimer's only), Delaware, Nebraska, South Dakota, and New Jersey are state funded or rely on other federal programs for support. With the exception of a small Lifespan Respite emergency respite voucher program, the Maryland Respite Care Program is entirely state funded.

Please note that you must be a resident of the state to be eligible to apply. Each state has its own eligibility criteria.
