The NFCSP provided about $155 million in grants to states in fiscal 2005 and served about 700,000 family caregivers, an average of a little more than $200 per caregiver served (AoA 2005; Greene 2008).
For example, respite services through the NFCSP are available only if the recipient has at least two personal care limitations or a cognitive impairment (AoA 2004).
For many of the nation's family caregivers of aging parents, the NFCSP is the only program to sustain and support them in their caregiving role.
