Grandparent Subsidy Program

Are you a District resident who’s raising your grandchild, great-grandchild, great-niece, or great-nephew? You may qualify for the Grandparent Caregiver Program. It provides monthly financial assistance to help you care for the child related to and living with you.

Although the DC Child and Family Services Agency runs the program, it is only for people not involved in the child welfare system. To find out more, see the Fact Sheet below. To apply, download and complete the application below and mail it as instructed.
