    • Round 1: LISS Random Selection Applications are accepted from May 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019.
  2. An application does not require any other supporting documents unless the Random Selection chooses an applicant.
    • We encourage the applicant to make a copy of the application and supporting documents prior to submitting the application.
    • To ensure receipt of the application, please consider sending the application via certified mail through the USPS, with a return receipt, or other certified mail provider.
  3. Random Selection Occurs Mid-July for Round 1 and Mid-December for Round 2.
  4. Notification in writing will be sent to applicants, a letter should be received in the beginning of  January.
  5. 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.  The letter would be accompanied by a guide for submitting documents and forms that would need to be completed.
    • 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.
