Family Support Funds

Throughout the United States, different assistance programs and benefits are available. Each of these depends on the state in which you live. Although most assistance does come from a federally funded program, it is administered on state levels, and each of the fifty states has its own regulations.

Some states have programs known as Family Support Funds.261 The Developmental Disability Center (DDC) in each state manages these funds. Qualifying for these funds is easy, and parents are usually taken on their word about a child’s disability. Payments can be as low as $500 a year and as high as $500 a month. The only requirement is that the funds distributed to each family must be used for the benefit of the child with the disability. Call the local DDC and ask about funds of this nature.
