The Seattle Human Services Department has issued a Request for Investments (RFI) for the King County Family Caregiver Support Program. Approximately $1,029,500 in funding is available. Of this, $960,000 is available to help reduce family caregiver stress and enable care receivers to remain at home and independent. An additional $69,500 is available for kinship caregiver programs, which help grandparents and other relatives caring for a child 18 or younger. Agencies interested in applying for this funding opportunity are strongly encouraged to attend one or both of the RFI information sessions.
