What is the Family Reimbursement Program?

The Family Reimbursement Program (FRP) is one of Starbridge’s Family Support Services, funded through the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Many families who have a family member with a developmental disability living at home have special expenses that the typical family does not have. Expenses covered by FRP may include goods and services, respite care, community involvement, and other items. This program is designed to assist the family with these increased costs.
