Ages: All

The Family Reimbursement Program is a Family Support Services income-based program that assists families with providing various goods and services to their loved ones with a developmental disability currently living at home. Families (biological, adaptive, or extended) are eligible to reimburse goods/services provided for a family member with a developmental disability who lives at home. A person living alone or in foster care is not eligible for Family Reimbursement.

As per OPWDD guidelines, funds are designated to assist expenses directly related to the disability which aims to enhance family stability and preserve the family unit.
