DM-6000.6000Participant Directed Financial Management Organizations Definition
Organizations that help individuals who receive public funds (or their families) manage and direct the distribution of funds contained in a participant-directed budget; facilitate the employment of staff by performing such employer responsibilities as processing payroll, withholding and filing federal, state and local taxes, and making tax payments to appropriate tax authorities as the participant's agent; perform fiscal accounting; and provide expenditure reports to the participant and/or family and state authorities.
NL-3000.1900Family Caregiver Subsidies Definition
Programs that use federal, state, local and/or other funding to provide financial assistance for family members (or other persons such as neighbors) who are serving as informal primary caregivers for frail elderly individuals or, in some cases, for adults with disabilities; for grandparents caring for grandchildren; or, in some jurisdictions, for families caring for children with severe disabilities. Age and other eligibility criteria may vary by area. Assistance may be provided in the form of cash to the consumer/caregiver, vouchers which can be redeemed with approved service providers or through pro bono services donated by local service providers to a service bank for family caregivers. The objective of the program is to make it possible for primary caregivers to obtain the assistance they need in order to continue in their caregiving role which, in turn, enables the frail elderly individual or person with a disability to remain in the community.
