WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
In a recent survey of individuals with ID/DD on OPWDD’s Residential Request List, a large percentage indicated a desire to explore/live in non-certified housing. This grant will support the development of the State capacity to deliver these residential options.

NY Alliance will increase and support the effort to have individuals with ID/DD living in a desired, community based and non-certified residential setting.
