|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||January 31, 2018||March 1, 2018||see attachment|
