Grants Available For Grandparent Caregivers

As the economy struggles to regain itsbacktoschool balance, raising a family becomes more and more difficult. Due to any number of reasons, many children now find themselves being cared for by their grandparents or another family member. This may put a strain on the relative’s finances.

There is some financial help available through a grant offered by the National Family Caregiver Program and administered through the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities. Currently, grants are available to assist with back to school clothing and supplies.

If you are 55 or older and caring for a youth under 18, you may be eligible for some assistance.   For more information, please call the program office at 410-222-4464, Extension 3043.
