There are three early intervention services subject to what is known as the Family Cost Participation Program: respite, day care and camping. This program only applies to families whose annual income is at least 400% of the federal poverty level. [Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code Sec. 4783.] In 2019, for example, 400% of the federal poverty level for a family of four was $100,400. Families with an income at this level or higher pay a percentage of the cost of their child’s respite, day care, or camping services. The percentage may be reduced by other factors such as the number of children living at home or in out-of-home placement
