(This amendment adds $15.0 million each year from the general fund provide support services to 6,800 individuals with intellectual and developmental disability (ID/DD) who are on waiting lists for services through the Individual and Family Support Program (IFSP). 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. In fiscal year 2014, the average request per recipient was $2,200. The IFSP is a cost-effective program that promotes natural supports. This amendment would ensure that all people with ID/DD who are on waiting lists are able to access the funds.)
