Auxiliary Grant

 

An auxiliary grant is a supplement to income for recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and certain other aged, blind, or disabled individuals residing in a licensed assisted living facility or an approved adult foster care home. This is assistance available from local departments of social services to ensure that recipients are able to maintain a standard of living that meets a basic level of need.

 

To be eligible for an auxiliary grant in Virginia, an individual must meet all of the following:

  • Be 65 or over or be blind or be disabled.
  • Reside in a licensed assisted living facility or approved adult foster care home.
  • Be a citizen of the United States or an alien who meets specified criteria.
  • Have a nonexempted (countable) income less than the total of the auxiliary grant rate approved for the assisted living facility plus the personal needs allowance.
  • Have nonexempted resources less than $2,000 for one person or $3,000 for a couple.
  • Have been assessed and determined to need assisted living facility care or adult foster care placement.

 

Auxiliary grant benefits are paid by the local department of social services where recipient residency has been established. Checks are mailed directly to the recipient or a payee, who in turn pays the assisted living facility for services provided.
