The purpose of this survey is to gather some preliminary information about resources that are helpful in supporting the use of individualized funding. We look forward to hearing about the resources you use or know of for individualized funds. This project is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services.

The ultimate goal is to make these resources easily available to anyone who wants to use them through The IF Library for individualized funding. The IF Library is intended to be useful to adults with DD, their families/support networks, and agencies.  

This project is being led by Dr. Barry Isaacs, Director, Research Evaluation and Education, Surrey Place Centre in partnership with:
Frances MacNeil, Regional Executive Director (Central), Community Living Toronto
Dr. Terri Hewitt, Vice President, Developmental Services Ontario – Toronto Region
Dr. Maria Huijbregts, Director, Knowledge Building, Family Service Toronto
