Families may apply for services if they have a child with a severe disability, under the age of 21, and living at home. A severe disability is a physical, mental or emotional limitation which seriously restricts the child's ability to carry out basic daily living activities such as self-care, learning, communications, mobility, and self-direction. Although family living income is not a basis for eligibility, cost-sharing may be required on a sliding fee scale. Family Support is a state-funded program. Because each county has limited funding for this program, eligibility does not guarantee a family will receive services. Agencies may have waiting lists for services and assessments. Administering agencies may make the final decision on who is served and approve each family's service plan. The contact person at the county is the Family Support Coordinator.
