The ISS Program provides financial subsidy to assist people with developmental disabilities in locating, leasing, or buying individualized living arrangements that are alternatives to traditional group living. Residential options include home sharing, independent living, HUD rental subsidy programs, low income home ownership programs, and other leasing and ownership initiatives.

These individuals may have limited financial resources, public assistance, food stamps, and SSI as their major sources of income. Our ISS contract covers items such as rent, utilities, clothing, insurance, groceries, recreation, household furnishing and supplies or other areas of need. It is entitled to supplement the resources that each person may already have.
