Short-Term Assistance & Referral Programs (STAR)


~~“The STAR program assists individuals with developmental disabilities and their families wishing to access services through State of Alaska Developmental Disabilities Programs. The STAR Program is often the “point of entry” for accessing services. Assistance may include: applying for eligibility; referral to a wide variety of resources in their home community; completing forms and gathering documentation for Medicaid, the Registration and Review, other public programs; and/or applying for Mini-Grants.
Safety Net Funds are administered by Stone Soup Group and provide limited funding to individuals who were previously supported by grant funding and are not eligible to receive services through either the Individualized Supports Waiver or the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waiver.”
