Kinship Caregivers Support Program

Kinship care is the full-time care of children by relatives. Kinship care occurs informally, when children are not involved with public child welfare agencies, and formally, when public child welfare agencies are involved in placing children with relatives. The Kinship Caregivers Support Program funds can be used to help pay for the cost of emergent needs incurred by grandparents or other relatives at the time a child(ren) comes to live with them as well as after the initial period.
