​Planned Respite and In-Home Supports for Youth
​DODD is seeking proposals from eligible applicants that will increase the capacity for and utilization of planned, therapeutic respite and intensive in-home supports to prevent or reduce out-of-home placements, prepare for successful return to homes of youth in out of home treatment or stabilization facilities, and improve outcomes for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities and significant behavioral challenges and their families. CBDD and local FCFCs already supporting these youth and families, struggle to find the necessary supports including planned, therapeutic respite.  
​DODD intends to provide funds for county collaboratives involving at a minimum, CBDD or Councils of Government (COG) (who must serve as the grant fiscal agent), the local FCFC, and service providers willing to provide planned, therapeutic respite and intensive in-home supports with or without additional training or supports from outside experts
