The applications are then submitted an reviewed by the reginal Family Support Council and a recommendation is made to the Family Support Coordinator, including funding decisions. Family support funds are not a guaranteed source of funding.
Who Is Eligible?
Families who have a child with a developmental disability who is living at home are eligible for the program. Although family income is not a basis for eligibility, cost sharing may be required.
How Do You Apply For Family Support?
