(This amendment adds $400,000 GF each year to continue the Lifespan Respite Voucher Program -- a program that gives family caregivers an opportunity to receive short-term, temporary respite care. The program is unique in that it serves people across the lifespan and across multiple disabilities. Funding will allow DARS to serve 1,500 to 2,000 families.)
