by Lara, Jacqueline, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 45; 13811783
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop a housing assistance program for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Life Steps Foundation Southern California Adult Services (LSF SoCal) in California was selected as the host agency for this program. After reviewing the literature on the obstacles individuals with disabilities face in finding affordable housing, the grant writer decided to develop a housing assistance program, iLiving. The purpose of iLiving is to provide housing placement assistance for individuals with intellectual disabilities who are either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Participants will receive financial assistance to help with moving expenses, rental deposit, and utility assistance. Participants will also receive help with case management and money management. This grant writer selected the Weingart Foundation as the funder for this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of the project.
