Family Support Grant (FSG)

The Family Support Grant Program provides cash grants to families of children, under 21 years of age with a certified disability, residing at home. The goal of the program is to prevent or delay the out-of-home placement of children and promote family health and social well-being by enabling access to family-centered services and supports.
