Who is Eligible for CLP

Children’s Law Project

Who is Eligible for CLP

To be eligible: 

  • You must be the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 21
  • The child must have a disability (the child does not need to be receiving disability benefits or have an official diagnosis to be eligible)
  • Household income and assets must be within certain limits
  • You must live in Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, or Schenectady Counties.

If you believe your child has a disability, our intake staff can determine your child’s eligibility for the Children’s Law Project.

If you are a minor and not living with your parent or guardian, you may call our intake staff yourself to see if you are eligible for the CLP.
