How to Obtain Vouchers for Respite Care

The Respite Voucher program helps caregivers pay for respite services.

The Respite Vouchers program is for caregivers whose children are diagnosed with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) or with autism and SED.

Families helped by the Respite Voucher program select and train their own respite provider. The respite voucher helps the family to pay that respite provider.

How Respite Vouchers Work:

  • Respite vouchers are self-directed.
  • All caregivers in the program are allowed a set amount to pay for respite services as needed for one year.
  • Funding for this program is limited.
