Text-Based Caregiver Support
DDPC announces funding to select one grantee in the amount of $600,000 ($200,000 per year for a three-year period) to develop a multimedia messaging service (MMS) campaign that will provide Text-based and other customizable information on topics including health, wellness and resources for family caregiver of children with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities.
