Hart-Supported Living Program

Hart-Supported Living Program

The Hart-Supported Living program is for Kentuckians with disabilities to request grants so they can live in, contribute to and participate in their communities. Any Kentuckian with a disability recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is eligible to apply for a Hart-Supported Living grant. The program is administered through the Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL). Supported Living allows people with all disabilities to request funds for a broad category of highly flexible, individualized services, combined with natural unpaid or other eligible paid supports. Funded grants may include, but are not limited to, homemaker services, personal care services, in home training and home management support, start-up grants, transportation, home modifications, adaptive and therapeutic equipment. Grants may be one-time, i.e., bathroom modification or ongoing or both. The Funding Teams will look at other sources you have applied to for possible assistance.

You (and your family, friends, and the people who support you) should consider applying for a Hart-Supported Living grant if:
– You want to live in a home of your choice that is typical of the homes where people without disabilities live.
– You want to participate in your community with all members of the community and your grant request contributes to your “overall plan” to live with supports in the community.
– You want to decide for yourself what supports and services you need to live in the community.
– You want to arrange for and manage your own supports, with help, when appropriate from friends, family, guardian or professionals.

How can I apply for Supported Living Services?
Contact your Regional Supported Living Coordinator for an application. Regional contacts are listed below. It may be helpful if you ask your Regional Supported Living Coordinator to assist in completing your application. Each application is scored by a Team according to “urgency of need.” Applications must be received by April 1 in the office of Regional Hart-Supported Living Coordinator for funding for the upcoming fiscal year, beginning July 1. Each region of the state is not allocated the same amount of funds, though the amount is based on disability statistics in that region.
