Caregiver Resource Centers

Since the late 1980s, New York State has provided $20,000 annually to 17 AAAs for local Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs) to provide caregivers with information, assistance, and counseling/support groups/training. (In 2008, in response to the budget crisis, the annual allocation to AAAs was reduced to $19,611.)

With the advent of the Title III-E funded caregiver program, these AAAs have coordinated their CRC programs with their Title III-E programs so that, from the caregiver perspective, there is a program consisting of a coordinated array of services that are comprehensive, complementary, and supplemental in nature.

During SFY 2013-2014, NYSOFA continued to fund 17 Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs). These CRCs trained 5,903 individuals; provided on-going oversight to 45 support groups in which 723 individuals participated; counseled 5,001 individuals; and provided 12,401 units of information and referral services.

In SFY 2014-2015, the budget contained an appropriation of $353,000 to support 17 Caregiver Resource Centers.
