Auxiliary Grants (AG) are a supplement to income for recipients of Supplemental Security Income and other low-income aged, blind, or disabled individuals residing in licensed assisted living facilities.

The grant amount received by eligible individuals includes a small personal allowance plus the difference between their own income and the state reimbursed rate for assisted living level of care.  AG recipients also receive medical assistance through the Medicaid program.  The AG Program is a state (80%) and locally (20%) funded financial assistance program administered at the local level.
