Hart Supported Living

The Hart-Supported Living program is for Kentuckians with disabilities to request funds for supports so they can live in their homes and communities and avoid institutionalization.

The Hart-Supported Living Program means grants that provide a broad category of highly flexible, individualized services that, when combined with natural unpaid or other eligible paid supports, provide the necessary assistance to do the following:

  • Provide the support necessary to enable a person who is disabled to live in a home of the person’s choice which is typical of those living arrangements in which persons without disabilities reside;
  • Encourage the individual’s integrated participation in the community with persons who are members of the general citizenry;
  • Promote the individual’s rights and autonomy;
  • Enhance the individual’s skills and competences in living in the community; and
  • Enable the individual’s acceptance in the community by promoting home ownership or leasing arrangements in the name of the individual or the individual’s family or guardian.

 

Is Hart-Supported Living a Program for You?

Any Kentuckian with a disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act is eligible to apply for funding. You (and/or your family, friends, and the people who support you) should consider applying for Hart-Supported Living funds if you meet the definition and you want to:

  • Live in a home of your choice that is typical of the homes where people without disabilities live;
  • Participate in your community with all members of the community;
  • Decide for yourself what supports and services you need to live in the community; and
  • Arrange for and manage your own supports.

Hart-Supported Living funds do not support:

  • Segregated living models such as any housing situation which physically or socially isolates people with disabilities from general citizens of the community;
  • Segregated programs or activities which physically or socially isolate people with disabilities from general citizens of the community;
  • Congregate living models such as any housing situation which groups individuals with disabilities in an enclave within an integrated setting;
  • Any model where the individual, as an adult, does not have maximum control of the home environment commensurate with the individual’s disabilities; and
  • Any single living unit where more than three people with disabilities live.
