Applications are open at the beginning of year for respite funding through Kerry’s Place Autism Services. This funding is from the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to serve as an enhancement for families to access respite services in their community. Kerry’s Place Autism Services is hosting this project in cooperation with other community agencies to oversee the application review process and the management of funds. Together with our community partners each application is carefully reviewed by an allocation committee. Decisions are made based on the criteria listed below and a strict funding budget. These funds can only serve a small portion of families each year with a limited amount of funding being allocated to each family approved. Families can only apply for these funds once a year and there is no guarantee of the availability of these funds in future years. Click HERE to apply online.
