FISP: Supporting Individuals and Families Information Systems Project (FISP)

Establishes and refines a comprehensive program of annual data collection from states on family support, and conducts longitudinal data analysis, policy studies, and dissemination activities to better understand and promote effective supports for families and individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) who direct their own support. The data gathered will be used to help federal and state agencies understand the current status and emerging trends in supporting families and individuals with IDD living in homes of their own or with family members (including consumer direction). It will also be used to compare and contrast services and expenditures targeting the person with IDD versus those targeting the family members with whom they reside, and to compare services for children versus services for adults with IDD.
