Virginia Caregiver Respite Program

Virginia Lifespan Respite Voucher Program

The Virginia Lifespan Respite Voucher Program (VLRVP) provides reimbursement vouchers to Virginia caregivers who resides full-time, in the same household as the person receiving care, for the cost of temporary, short-term respite care provided to individuals, of any age, with a documented disability or special need. VLRVP is focusing on people with dementia and grandparents or relative caregivers providing care to a child not more than 18 years of age or an individual 19 to 59 years of age with a severe disability.

Priority will be given to assist those caregivers with the greatest social and economic need. Respite funding is limited to $400 per family thru July 31, 2021, or until funds are exhausted. Funds may NOT be used to reimburse household expenses or daycare (to go to work or other daycare). Due to limited funds, not all eligible applications will be approved and households that received a past benefit will be ineligible.


Go to website for more details and application.
