Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers

We recognize the important role of family caregivers in supporting the health and wellness of Veterans. Find out if you may be eligible and how to apply for the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC).

We’re working to give more family caregivers access to this program

Learn more about this change and how it may affect you

As part of the VA MISSION Act, we’re working to give more family caregivers access to this program so we can support them as they care for Veterans of all eras.

We're expanding access in 2 phases:

On October 1, 2020, we expanded the program to include family caregivers of eligible Veterans who were seriously injured in the line of duty on or before May 7, 1975.

2 years from this date, we’ll further expand the program to include family caregivers of eligible Veterans from all eras who were seriously injured in the line of duty.

For more information about this expansion or to learn about the many support services you can access now:

Visit our Caregiver Support Program website.

Or call our Caregiver Support Line at 855-260-3274. We’re here Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.

You can also check our MISSION Act website for ongoing updates or go to the Federal Register to read the final regulation.

Am I eligible for the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers?

You may be eligible if you and the Veteran you’re caring for meet all of the requirements listed below.

Eligibility requirements for the family caregiver

You must be at least 18 years old and at least one of these must be true for you.

You must be either:

  • A spouse, son, daughter, parent, stepfamily member, or extended family member of the Veteran, or
  • Someone who lives full-time with the Veteran, or is willing to do so if designated as a family caregiver

Eligibility requirements for the Veteran

All of these must be true for the Veteran you’re caring for. 

The Veteran must have a VA disability rating (individual or combined) of 70% or higher. The Veteran’s service-connected disabilities must have been caused or made worse by their active-duty service during one of these periods of time:

  • On or after September 11, 2001, or
  • On or before May 7, 1975

And the Veteran must:

  • Have been discharged from the U.S. military or have a date of medical discharge, and
  • Need at least 6 months of continuous, in-person personal care services

How do I apply for this program?

You and the Veteran will need to apply together and participate in an application process to determine if you’re eligible for the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers. You'll both need to sign and date the application, and answer all questions for your role.

You can apply online right now.
Apply for the program of comprehensivecaregiver assistance

Note: Each time the Veteran wants to add a new family caregiver, the Veteran and the new caregiver will need to submit a new application. Remember, there can only be 1 Primary and up to 2 Secondary Family Caregivers designated at any one time.

What if the Veteran isn’t enrolled in VA health care yet?
