Individuals and families have two payment options through Individualized Funding: Direct Funding or Host Agency Funding.

Direct Funding

Direct Funding is an IF payment option where funds allocated by CLBC are paid directly by CLBC to an individual or his/her agent (family member or representative) for the purchase of supports and services. For more information, please see the following documents:

Host Agency Funding

With the Host Agency Funding payment option the funds allocated by CLBC for the purchase of individualized supports and services are paid by CLBC to a Host Agency that has been approved by CLBC and selected by the individual and family. The Host Agency administers the funds and works with the individual and family to arrange and manage the supports required. This option provides the benefits of Individualized Funding, but with less responsibility for paperwork and record-keeping. To learn more, please see the following policy:
