Self-Directed Supports for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

SDS User Support Group | Resources | SDS Home

Once a person is determined eligible for support through the Division of Developmental Disabilities and assigned a funding level, individuals may choose a provider agency or design their own supports and direct how thier assigned support dollars are spent through the use of a fiscal intermediary.

If choosing self-directed supports, you should begin conversations with your fiscal intermediary four to six months before the expected start of service.

Visit the BHDDH website for information on eligibility and services.
