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. For details on eligible expenses, please visit the IFSP website and review the program guidelines.

Important Notice Regarding the IFSP-Funding Program

We have received the maximum number of applications that can be funded for FY 2020, and have therefore limited access to the Funding Portal. If you would still like to submit an application for assistance, please request access to the IFSP Application Portal by emailing ifspcom@dbhds.virginia.gov. Please note there are no additional funds left for FY 2020. FY 2021 funds will likely be available in late 2020.

Thank you,

The IFSP Staff
