Here's some encouraging news from our policy team:
President Obama will announce a proposed increase in the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) during his State of the Union address on Wednesday night, January 27, 2010. The NFCSP, part of the Older Americans Act (OAA) provides critical services to support family caregivers. Up to ten percent of the funding appropriated for the NFCSP can be used to provide support services to grandparents or relatives over age 55 who are raising relatives’ children.
