There are several ways families who need help paying for the conference can receive assistance.
Funding from Long-Term Support Programs:
If your child is covered by the Children’s Long Term Support Program or the Children’s Community Options Program you can request that your child’s plan cover the cost of registration and hotel and/or travel expenses. Talk to your child’s service coordinator!
See the “Paying for Conference Registration Using Waiver Funds” information sheet to learn more. If you have questions, contact Lynn (Planning Committee facilitator) at Lynn@fvofwi.org. Your CLTS service coordinator can contact Kate Johnson at the Department of Health Services at SarahKate2.Johnson@wisconsin.gov
Scholarships from Elsie Shaw Foundation:
Families can apply for a scholarship through the Elsie Shaw Foundation to pay for conference registration and their hotel rooms.
