RISP: National Residential Information Systems Project: Data Collection and Information Dissemination on Residential and In Home Services for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (RISP)

Examines the status of, and longitudinal trends in, provision of institutional and home and community based long-term supports and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The project, which began in 1977, collects annual data from state IDD agencies about state and non-state operated services, residential setting types and sizes, Medicaid and other funding authorities, and recipient age. It describes state and national trends in where LTSS recipients live, examines the impact of Medicaid and other Federal policies on state systems, and informs research, legislation, litigation, and policy.
