FAXED AND EMAILED APPLICATIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED AND CONSIDERED FOR FUNDING.
The LISS regulations have changed beginning with Round 2 of Fiscal Year 2017. Below is information from DDA regarding these changes, which have an impact applicant and service eligibility.
The Low Intensity Support Services program (LISS) is low level funding designed to improve an individual or family’s quality of life, increase or maintain independence, and participate in their communities.
The LISS program uses an automated system called the Random Selection Process to select individuals who may be eligible for funding, granting up to $2000 for services and items to address their needs.
The use of a Random Selection Process promotes equality and access for everyone. The process includes an application, selection, eligibility determination, and the procurement of eligible items and services. The system is indiscriminate; it does not consider the identity or any other personal aspect of the applicants. The DDA distributes LISS funding twice during the fiscal year with applications accepted during Round 1 and Round 2.
