The Big Payback is an exciting 24-hour window when Middle Tennessee comes together to contribute to the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations. It was created by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee as a way to increase philanthropy in the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee and to galvanize the community to “give back” in a big way. This giving day shines a spotlight on LOCAL giving and creates a new sense of energy around generosity. Watch for our emails and social media postings beginning 6:00 pm on Wednesday, May 4th and ACHIEVE WITH US!

FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM 
 
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 in order to be considered by the Family Support Local Council in the first round of allocations, the application plus any needed proofs needed to be received by March 31st.   If you submit your application now and are found eligible you will be most likely place on the waiting list.
 
The 2022-2023 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.  
 
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.
