Local Programming Recap

Provider Grants

Provider Grants are available to community organizations and Program Approved Service Agencies (PASAs) and are intended to increase capacity or quality in serving individuals; this year, that funding includes stability funding.

Individual Unmet Needs Allocations

These are funds to support individuals and families with unmet or under-met needs in the community. Needs include additional respite, professional services, and integrative supports such as classes, camps, transportation, etc.

Community Outreach Waitlist Service Coordination

These funds support service coordination for individuals and families who do not yet qualify for state or waiver-funded programming and are currently waitlisted. This team helps individuals and families access community resources, including all mill-levy-funded programming

Care Coordination: Mill Levy Roles

Specialized Mill Levy roles such as crisis coordination, county liaisons, resource navigation, research and quality outcomes, and financial and data analysis

Care Coordination Enrollments and Systems Navigation

Specialized supported intake and enrollment functions to provide services not otherwise funded to clients who need to access I/DD supports to support better referral outcomes for those in need of services.

Care Coordination: Wrap Around (LTC and EI)

Wrap-around care coordination helps case managers and coordinators connect clients/families to mill levy supports and resources and provide wrap-around care coordination; it also supports lower caseloads.

Scholarship Opportunities (to Individuals)

These funds support free or discounted opportunities to individuals and families in our catchment area—in essence, making specialized programming more affordable.


Sponsorships support organizations with things such as fundraising events, community events, and educational training for which DP is an active and advertised event sponsor.

Activities and Miscellaneous Supports

Activities include trainings and events, which are intended to support and engage individuals and families as well as community providers. Our events provide opportunities for individuals and families to connect, build relationships, participate in the community, and learn.
