Lifespan Respite State Mini-Grants

Some of the Lifespan Respite grantees in collaboration with their state respite coalition and/or other partners, have used their initial Lifespan Respite infrastructure building grants, expansion grants or integration and sustainability grants to offer mini-grants to local community-based organizations to expand or enhance respite services in local communities. Examples of the RFPs/RFAs used by state grantees to solicit proposals, PPT presentations on mini grant implementation and outcomes, and other related information are included here.
