News from the
Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration

The Developmental Disabilities Administration, part of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, will begin accepting requests for its Low Intensity Support Services (LISS) program beginning July 1. LISS grants assist adults with developmental disabilities and families with a child with developmental disabilities in purchasing services and/or items to address needs.

Applications are being accepted from July 1 through July 31, 2014.

  • Instead of first-come, first-served, a random selection of applicants will be selected after the application period ends July 31.
  • A second round of applications will be solicited beginning January 1 through January 31, 2015.
  • Applications will be accepted in person, by mail or by email for the entire month of July and later during the month of January 2015.
  • Applications will now only be accepted by the provider in your region.
  • The cap was lowered from $3000 to $2000 to reach many more families.
