The Random Selection Application submission process is the following:

  • Random Selection Applications must be submitted online. If you are unable to submit the application online, you are asked to please contact the LISS Program Provider and request assistance. The DDA will only accept online applications.
  • Random Selection Applications for each Round will be submitted online through an access link.
  • The access link can also be found on the DDA website in the following two locations:
    1. The Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration’s web homepage, under the heading “What’s New at DDA”. To recognize the access link, the following wording will be visible to say “To apply for the LISS FY 2022 Round 1 Random Selection, Click here.” The “Click here” is the URL link that will take you to the electronic Random Selection Application.
    2. The second location will be on the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration’s LISS homepage, under the heading “Forms”. Please look for the wording “Click here to apply”.
  • Once submitting the Random Selection Application online, you will receive a confirmation receipt of your application with a confirmation number. This confirmation will be emailed to the email address indicated in the Random Selection Application. This confirmation number can be used as reference to inquire about your submission.
  • The access link will be available during each Round-Random Selection Application submission period only. After each Round, the access link will be closed.
  • After the random selection occurs, notification in writing will be sent to applicants, a letter should be received by the beginning of  August (Round 1)/January (Round 2).
  • Applicants would receive one of three letters, a selected letter, a not-selected letter, or a denial letter.
    • A selected letter means your request was selected by the random selection process for potential funding. Additional documentation would be required in order to be determined eligible.
    • A not-selected letter means that, at this time, the applicant has not been selected by the random selection process and may reapply for the next round of funding. If for some reason funding becomes available, the applicant would be notified that their status has changed.
    • A denial letter would be received if the applicant is not eligible for the LISS program based on their enrollment in a DDA funded service or Maryland Medicaid funded waiver, if this can be established at the time of random selection.
