If you have, or know someone who has, a developmental disability (which includes but is not limited to the autism spectrum), you/they live in Southern Maryland (Calvert, Charles, Montgomery, Prince George's or St. Mary's County), and could use extra funding to pay for Low Intensity Support Services (LISS), please get in touch with Maryland Community Connection (MCC) right away.
LISS refers to a wide range of services, which certainly includes life and career coaching but also things like medical and dental services, eviction prevention, adaptive equipment and many other things. (If you even think it might be covered, put it down on the application and they'll consider it!)
MCC actually has extra money they need to give out by the end of the fiscal year - June 30. This is not an income- or means-based program. Barring any complications, they'll give you a decision within 10 business days of your completed application (one page form plus documentation). Their requirements have liberalized substantially since December 2009, when the program started.
If you contact MCC, please tell 'em I sent you. If you'd like to ask any questions before getting in touch with them, just drop me a line. Do hurry, 'cause money is long but time is short!
