About the Individualized Funding (IF) Library Website
The IF Library is a website that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families best utilize their individualized funding, sometimes called direct funding. Surrey Place, along with project partners Community Living Toronto, Developmental Services Ontario-Toronto Region, and Family Service Toronto, worked with adults with IDD, families, and agencies across Ontario to better understand how to access and use individualized funding.
The IF Library provides users with easy to read explanations about important topics related to individualized funding, along with links to resources that provide detailed information and videos. The website also features an interactive planning guide relevant to all ages. The guide lists things to consider doing and links to tools and resources that identify important steps to take while planning for different stages in life.
The IF Library was made possible through funding of the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. It enables people with IDD and their support networks to access quality information about individualized funding that enhances choice and self-determination.
