What do you mean by funding sources?
A cost is attached to all programs and services. Although private pay is an option this commitment is often expensive and short term. With many conditions requiring long-term treatment and various treatments, federal and state departments have pockets of funding in place for the long term. This is known as your “funding source” or “funder”.
Who do I call for funding?
- At age 18 an individual with a disability should apply to the Department of Social Services (DSS), for Medicaid/Title 19 and Social Security Entitlements. Visit website
- It is imperative that your son/daughter be eligible for Medicaid in order to receive Department of Developmental (DDS) Vocational or Day Program funding upon high school graduation.
- Services for people with developmental disabilities are available through the New York state Office for People with Developmental Services (OPWDD). Visit website
