Multi-family Integrated Supportive Housing Program (ISH)

Through ISH, OPWDD sponsors the development and management of apartments within developments built with public funds that have services provided by OPWDD certified provider agencies. These services can be community habilitation or supportive IRA services. Individuals living in non-certified ISH apartments hold the lease for the apartment in their own name and control the setting and may receive an array of other OPWDD waiver services such as community habilitation and other non-waiver services. ISH apartments are expected to be noncertified unless the service provider can document a rationale why the apartment needs to be a certified IRA, based on the individualized needs of the person(s) who will reside there.
