Financial Help for Michigan Families

MICHIGAN has a program to help families who care for their children with disabilities. Called the Family Support Subsidy Program. I think its a great program!!!

A monthly payment (subsidy) is provided for treatment, medical equipment, medical bills, special diets, diapers, family counseling, special transportation, respite care, etc. Each family decides how they want to allocate their $ they receive to help the child.

Some of the
Eligibility Requirements are : 1. child's birth certificate 2. current tax return
3. child's social security no.
4. written certification from child's teacher stating diagnosis of
Cognitive Impairment, Severe Multiple Impairment or Autism
5. child must be under 18 years old
6. Your families taxable income must not exceed $60 k annually
