Family Support Assistance

Family Support Assistance payments - This is a cash payment program for families who are caring for children under age 18 at home. In this program, families can receive payments of $250-$400 per month depending on the number of children with disabilities in the home. Families who meet the income eligibility may choose this State-funded cash payment in lieu of Medicaid Home and Community-Based services.

Eligibility

  • Have an intellectual disability or other developmental disability per 10 O.S. § 1408;
