In 1992, the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation establishing a statewide Family Support Program. Statewide funding for this program is determined by our state legislators on a yearly basis. The program is administered by the State of Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and managed in Williamson County by The Arc Williamson County. The program is designed to assist individuals with severe disabilities and their families to remain together in their homes and communities by providing financial assistance and community resource information.  Services provided include but are not limited to reimbursement for day care, respite care, specialized supplies, home and vehicle modifications, and equipment.
Applications are accepted any time throughout the year but if you are applying after March 31, and your are found eligible, you will most likely be placed on a waiting list as completed applications for the following fiscal year are due by March 31st every year.  Completed applications include a completed, signed Intake Form and the necessary proofs-disability, citizenship and residency. The Intake/Application Form and our handbook can be found on our website at or by contacting Sharon at 615-790-5815, ext. 3. 
If you live outside of Williamson County you can call 615-532-6552 to find out what agency administers the Family Support Program in your area.
