The Independent Living Support Pilot (ILSP) is a new program funded by ARPA to help Milwaukee County residents live independently, break barriers, and enhance their quality of life.
Participants must be Wisconsin residents (and a U.S. citizen or eligible immigrant).
You must be over the age of 18, not enrolled in a Medicaid long-term care program or living in a licensed/certified residential facility and meet income and functional need requirements.
Participants must earn less than 300% of the federal poverty level, with no deductible or consideration of spousal income.
Individuals under 55 must have a qualifying diagnosis, which may be a long-term disability.
The ILSP offers both one-time/periodic and continuing benefits and services to support independent living up to $7,200. Examples include:
