Family Support Subsidy Program

Michigan has a program to help families who care for their children with severe disabilities at home. The Family Support Subsidy Program can pay for special expenses the family has while caring for their child with severe disabilities. This financial support may help prevent or delay placements outside the home. In other cases, the program may provide the funds necessary to allow children to return from placements outside the home. Supporting families of children with severe disabilities in this way allows families to stay together. It gives them flexibility in purchasing special services and saves money by avoiding or reducing the need for more costly placements outside the home.
