National Family Caregiver Support

The National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) was enacted

and became part of the Older Americans Act in 2000. The program calls for states

to work in partnership with community based agencies serving seniors to develop

and provide basic services to support families who are taking care of elders.

For information on the federal NFCSP initiative, go to the Administration on Aging web

site at and follow the Families and Elders link to the National Family

Caregiver Support Program .


The Relatives as Parents Program (RAPP) was established to help

grandparents and other relatives parenting children obtain needed information,

services and support.


The KIDKAMP Connection gives respite to the caregiver 60 and older and the child.

Scholarships are available for children 18 and under to participate in recreational and

educational programs during school and summer vacations and on some Saturdays.
