How Does LISS' Random Selection Process Work?

Random Selection Process

To apply via the Random Selection process, please read the instructions below. If you have received an acceptance letter in the mail, please scroll down for further information.

  1. Apply online:
  2. Random Selection occurs mid-July for Round 1 and mid-December for Round 2.
  3. Notification in writing will be sent to applicants; a letter should be received by the beginning of August (Round 1)/January (Round 2).
  4. 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.
