If your son or daughter is a client of the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA), 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): $1,560, $2,340, $3,120, $4,680.
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.
