Penn-Mar is currently accepting Random Selection Applications for FY 19 Round 1.
Applications must be received in our office by 6/29/2018 to be considered for Round 1.
NOTE: Applications MUST be mailed or hand delivered to the applicant’s LISS provider.
FAXED AND EMAILED APPLICATIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED AND CONSIDERED FOR FUNDING.
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.
