The Department of Veterans Affairs Caregiver Support Program eligibility is exteded through Sept. 30, 2022, for veterans who are legacy participants, legacy applicants, and their family caregivers, participating in the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers.

This extension helps veterans who were participating in PCAFC before Oct.1, 2020, those who applied for PCAFC before Oct.1, 2020, and those who were accepted into the program after Oct.1, 2020.

“During this one-year period, approximately 19,500 legacy participants, legacy applicants, and their family caregivers will be reassessed,” said VA Caregiver Support Program Executive Director Dr. Colleen M. Richardson.

VA , because of this extension, will have an additional year to conduct required reassessments of the group. This VA program offers enhanced clinical support for family caregivers of eligible Veterans who incurred or aggravated a serious injury in the line of duty and meet other eligibility criteria.
