Low Intensity Support Services

DDA Clients

The Low Intensity Support Services program (LISS) is low level funding designed to improve an individual or family’s quality of life, increase or maintain independence, and participate in their communities. The LISS program uses an automated system called the Random Selection Process to select individuals who may be eligible for funding, granting up to $2000 for services and items to address their needs.

The use of a Random Selection Process promotes equality and access for everyone. The process includes an application, selection, eligibility determination, and the procurement of eligible items and services. The system is indiscriminate; it does not consider the identity or any other personal aspect of the applicants. The DDA distributes LISS funding twice during the fiscal year with applications accepted during Round 1 and Round 2.


LISS applications will be accepted until July 31, 2016 for round 1 funding. These requests will be randomly selected and the LISS providers will begin contacting families who are selected for additional information in September 2016. Applications received after July 31, 2016 will be held for round 2 selection.
