The number of LTSS recipients with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) who lived in the home of a family member or who lived in individualized settings increased in both number and proportion from 1977 to 2017 as home and community-based services became available. In 1977, 84% of people with IDD lived institutions of 16 or more people was 84% of the people getting services. By 2017, this was down to 8%. The proportion of service recipients living in settings of 1-6 people grew from 8% to 83% between 1977 and 2017. During that same time, the number of people receiving services in their family homes grew from 247,780 to 516, 505 people. Much of the growth in the numbers of people with IDD receiving long-term supports and services is in people living in their family home.
