Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ICF/IID)
The Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID) program is a community-based residential service option provided in homes with six or more individuals. This ICF/IID program provides similar services provided in an HCS residential home. The services include staff available to assist individuals with identified needs, access to medical care, the opportunity to attend Day Habilitation or similar programs, and participation in community activities.
If you choose to access the ICF/IID residential option, you are able to keep your current placement on interest lists for home and community-based waiver services, such as HCS, Texas Home Living, Community Living Assistance and Support Services, and Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities programs.

If you are interested in this residential option, contact us at (210) 557-5354. We will assist you in applying for the service. The application process for admission to an ICF/IID involves sharing an individual's diagnosis and medical and support needs with ICF/IID providers to ensure they have the appropriate services and resources to best meet an individual's needs.
