Grant Services

Grant Services are funded entirely from State dollars and provide services such as Respite Care, Individualized Assistance and Core Funds.

Respite Care is a planned, short-term, time limited service that gives families who have dependents who experience moderate to severe developmental disabilities “time-out” while providing safe, loving care.

Individuals who experience developmental disabilities often have limited opportunities to participate in normal social experiences of others. Respite Care provides a chance for parents to regain their own strength and enthusiasm for life; it also offers the individual with a developmental disability a positive experience with adults and children other than their own family.

Individualized Services are driven by the desires and needs of the consumer and family. Funded Individualized consumers will participate in identifying desired services and supports, in determining how services are received, what type of lifestyle they have, and in which life areas they will need help. Individualized Services may include:

  • Case Management

  • Behavior Management

  • Individualized Skills Training

  • Residential and Transportation Services

  • and/or Other Services Identified by Individual Consumers
