VA Caregiver Support Logo

Beginning November 27, 2018 through December 12, 2018 the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will accept public comments on how to implement certain changes to the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) required by the VA MISSION Act of 2018.

The VA MISSION Act of 2018 expands eligibility for PCAFC to family caregivers of eligible Veterans who incurred or aggravated a serious injury in the line of duty before Sept. 11, 2001 using a phased approach, establishes new benefits for designated primary family caregivers of eligible Veterans and makes other changes affecting program eligibility and VA’s evaluation of PCAFC applications.

Submitted responses will be used to guide future regulatory modifications and implementation of the expanded PCAFC.  The Federal Register notice and comment submission form can be found at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/11/27/2018-25763/notice-of-request-for-information-on-the-department-of-veterans-affairs-program-of-comprehensive .
