Family & Caregiver Training

Indiana’s Medicaid Waiver program provides that individuals receiving a Family Supports Waiver or Community Integration & Habilitation Waiver can spend up to $2,000 of their waiver budget per year for Family and Caregiver Training.

These funds can be used to provide training and education to parents, family members or non-paid caregivers in a variety of areas. Examples include workshops, conferences, marriage and family counseling, or how to develop an individualized support plan. Family and Caregiver Training funds can help families and caregivers better meet the needs of their loved one.

The Arc’s Family and Caregiver Training Services Program allows The Arc to pay for any upfront costs, and then seek Medicaid reimbursement, saving families the cost of out-of-pocket expenses.
