Individual and Family Support Program Funding - VA Dept. of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services
The Individual and Family Support Program-Funding is designed to assist children and adults on the waiting list for the Developmental Disability Waiver Program to access short-term resources, supports, and services that will help them remain in their own community homes. 

IFSP-Funding provides direct assistance to families and individuals who are on Virginia’s DD waiver waitlist. Individuals with a developmental disability who are on the DD waitlist or their family member are eligible to apply. IFSP funds cover the cost of a variety of items that will help an individual who is living in a community setting.
