Flex provides individualized funding to participants living at home with their families or who live independently with support from their families or personal support networks. That funding is used to:
- purchase supports specific to a participant’s disability-related needs and goals;
- promote the participant's independence, self-reliance, and social inclusion; and
- offer an alternative to, prevent or delay a participant’s placement in a DSP-funded residential support option.
To be eligible for the Flex program an applicant must meet all of the DSP general eligibility requirements outlined in section 4.0 of the DSP Program Policy, in sections 4.0 and 5.0 of the DSP Financial Eligibility Policy, and meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the Level of Support Policy.Read more in the FLEX Policy (PDF).
