FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM 
Accepting Applications for Fiscal Year 2022-2023
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 developmental or severe disabilities and their families to remain together in their homes and communities by providing financial assistance and community resource information.  You may not receive Family Support if you receive services through TennCare Choices; TennCare ECF Waiver; the DIDD Statewide, Self-Determination or CAC Waiver; or the Katie Beckett Waiver. Services provided include but are not limited to reimbursement for day care, respite care, specialized supplies, home and vehicle modifications, and equipment. 
 
The Arc Williamson County accepts applications for Family Support at any time throughout the year but is now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.  In order to be considered by the Family Support Local Council in the first round of allocations, the application plus any needed proofs need to be received by March 31st.   
 
The 2021-2022 Intake/Application Form and our handbook can be found on the website at www.thearcwc.org or by contacting Sharon at 615-790-5815, ext. 3.  The 2022-2023 Intake/Application Form is also now available  on the website.
 
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.
