Florida Parishes Human Services Authority - Developmental Disabilities Services (FPHSA-DDS) has funding available for the Individual and Family Support (IFS) Program. IFS is designed to provide a range of supports to eligible individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The supports assist individuals with remaining at home or in the community. Because everyone is unique, supports will be unique and will change with time and the circumstances of the individual and family needing the supports. Supports are intended to maintain maximum flexibility by meeting needs which exceed those normally met by other funding sources and other resources. Examples of eligible supports include but are not limited to: special equipment/supplies, special nutrition/clothing, respite personal care attendant, home modifications, recreation services, transportation, specialized utility cost, sitter services, equipment and supplies, companion services, vocational/employment supports.
If you or someone you know needs supports, call FPHSA-DDS agency at (985) 543-4730 or 1-800-866-0806.
