Auxiliary grants are offered to city residents who are age 65 or over, blind, or disabled, and who are also living in assisted living facility or adult foster care home. The Auxiliary Grant recipient may use the funds in order to pay for the care provided by the home. Individuals who receive money from this program are also eligible for Medicaid.
