Thanks to additional funding by our state legislature last year, our state has opened its door to enrollment for nearly 4,000 children and adults on DDA’s No Paid Services Caseload.
IFS is Open for Enrollment.
If your son or daughter is a client of the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) and not receiving a paid service, they may be eligible to receive a broad array of services and supports through the Individual & Family Services (IFS) waiver. The IFS waiver has four different funding levels (determined by assessed need): $1200; $1800; $2400; $3600. These are the same funding levels as the state-only IFS program that’s being phased out.
Family Income is Not Considered.
After an assessment determines level of need, a financial eligibility determination is made based on the individual’s income*, not the family’s. In addition to IFS services, clients on the IFS waiver will be eligible for Apple Health/Medicaid health care.
*DDA clients who have resources in their name in excess of $2,000 may not be eligible for the IFS waiver.

- Assistive Technology
