Housing - Flexible Funding for Individuals with Developmental Disability

The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) launched the Housing and Supportive Services (HSS) initiative to increase access to and availability of integrated and independent housing options for eligible individuals with a developmental disability. To support this initiative, DBHDS awarded one-time funding to Health Planning Region II, including Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax-Falls Church, Loudoun, Manassas, Manassas Park, and Prince William, to support eligible individuals in their efforts to transition to or remain in integrated, independent housing. Funds must be used to secure housing, such as temporary rental assistance, non-reimbursable environmental modifications, or non-reimbursable assistive technology improvements or to maintain current housing, such as emergency rent, utilities, or repairs.


  • Individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) and individuals with developmental disabilities (DD), such as autism, cerebral palsy, spina-bifida and other disabling conditions.
  • Individuals eighteen (18) and over and transitioning out of training centers, skilled nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities, congregate residential settings or family homes who have been approved to live in a qualified residence, who receive Medicaid ID or DD waiver services, or who are currently on the Medicaid ID or DD waiver waitlist.
  • Must be moving into a residence that qualifies as independent, integrated housing, with a signed lease in their own name.
  • Individuals receiving services from Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax-Falls Church, Loudoun, or Prince William community services boards.
  • Must meet all criteria outlined above.
