New to the DCFPI Toolkit: Interim Disability Assistance

Another addition has been made to the DCFPI FY 2013 Budget Toolkit: Interim Disability Assistance.

Highlights from the toolkit:

  • Mayor Gray’s proposed budget maintains funding for IDA at $2.4 million in FY 2013. The funding levels in these two years are the LOWEST since IDA was established in 2002.
  • The proposed amount means that the average monthly caseload for the IDA program will hold at 750 cases per month. This is far lower than in 2009, when nearly 2,800 residents with disabilities received IDA benefits.
