Kara McCroskey, the Statewide Coordinator for the Illinois Respite Coalition will be hosting a Zoom meeting for CIDSO regarding IRC Respite Grants.  The IRC exists to connect families with DCFS funding for in-home respite. In addition to respite grants, a new Lifespan Emergency Respite Care (ERC) grant allows families who are not currently receiving in-home respite or waivers to be reimbursed up to $500 for ERC.


The meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 24 at 6:00pm Central Time.


Flyers for both programs are linked below.  If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Kara McCroskey via email at mailto:kmccroskey.irc@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.
