Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities Program
About the program
If you are a parent or guardian who is caring for a child with a severe disability you may be able to get financial support through the Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities (ACSD) Program. This program provides financial support for low-income and moderate-income families to cover some of the extra costs of caring for a child who has a severe disability.
Eligible parents and guardians can receive between $25 and $500 a month to help with disability-related costs.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are temporarily changing how we process disability-related expenses under the Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities (ACSD) program to support people and their families while community-based activities and settings are closed.
