(This amendment adds $1.1 million each year from the general fund to provide support services to 500 individuals with intellectual and developmental disability (ID/DD) who are not on the Medicaid ID/DD waiver waiting lists due to the level of functioning criteria. Services would be based on the current Individual and Family Support Program (IFSP) model. The IFSP provides up to $3,000 per person in flexible support funds to 1,000 individuals/families while they are on waiting lists for community-based care. The IFSP only serves people on the ID/DD waiver waiting lists, which leaves many people with ID/DD at risk of institutionalization. This is a cost-effective program that promotes natural supports.)
