Grandparenting Program

The Grandparent Program is designed to provide assistance to older persons who are caring for the children of family members, and who live in the same household.  Priority is given to caregivers with the greatest financial and social need who are raising children with special needs. 

The Grandparent Program is an ongoing effort to provide intergenerational programming opportunities and to develop stronger ties with educational and child-care networks.


The following eligibility requirements must be met to participate in this program:

  • The caregiver must be age 55 or older, and be the primary caregiver for relatives who are no more than 18 years of age
  • The caregiver and child/children must reside in the same household
  • The family must reside in Fayette, Greene, or Washington County

The Process

Once a referral is made, agency staff will visit the home and complete an assessment of the caregiver’s needs.  Based on the assessed needs and the financial situation of the family, the caregiver may be eligible to receive reimbursement for in-home and center-based respite care services and for limited supplemental services.  An Agency Care Manager will also assist the family in accessing other available community services.
