(This amendment provides $350,000 the second year from the general fund to support the Virginia Lifespan Respite Voucher Program (VLRVP) which provides reimbursement vouchers to Virginia caregivers who reside full-time, in the same household as the person receiving care, for the cost of temporary, short-term respite care provided to individuals, of any age, with a diagnosis of dementia and for grandparents or relative caregivers providing care to a child not more than 18 years of age or an individual 19 to 59 years of age who has a severe disability. Priority is given to assist those caregivers with the greatest social and economic need. Respite funding is limited to $400 per family through July 31, 2021 or until funds are exhausted. Funds may not be used to reimburse household expenses or daycare).
