Is there a limit on how many months a relative can receive Relative/Other Suitable Person Support Services?

Yes. Services under this funding category may not be authorized for more than four (4) consecutive months. Most payments under Relative/Suitable Person Support Services will be a one-time payment. In rare situations, a relative/suitable person may need help for a brief period of time to maintain a child in their home. This should be approved on a case by case basis.
