Auxiliary Grant ProgramAux Grant Image

An auxiliary grant is an income supplement for individuals who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and certain other aged, blind, or individuals with disabilities who reside in a licensed assisted living facility (ALF) or an approved adult foster care (AFC) home.

An auxiliary grant payment is issued to an individual monthly, to be used with a designated amount of their monthly income to pay an ALF or AFC a maximum monthly rate. This rate is determined by the Virginia General Assembly and is adjusted periodically.

The Auxiliary Grant Program is 80 percent state funded and 20 percent locally funded and is administered by the Virginia Department of Social Services. It is only for individuals who reside in an ALF licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services' Division of Licensing Programs or in an AFC home approved by their local department of social services. Not all ALFs accept auxiliary grant payments.

To learn more or to apply for the Auxiliary Grant Program, visit the Virginia Department of Social Services website.
