Guardianship Assistance Program (GAP)


While private forms of guardianship can be a financial burden to the caregiver, obtaining permanent guardianship through Florida's child welfare system costs nothing to the caregiver. The required educational resource hours and home study are provided free of charge, and even court costs and fees can be covered through the Department of Children and Families.
