Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County – eitas is a Jackson County taxpayer-approved and funded government subdivision. For over 35 years eitas’ role in Jackson County has been to fund needed services for citizens with developmental disabilities. Traditionally eitas has been the “funder of last resort,” covering costs of services, facilities and equipment that are not paid by other sources such as Medicaid or the Department of Mental Health.
By statute, eitas can provide tax funds for services only to citizens of Jackson County who meet state eligibility requirements and in accordance with eitas local funding policies. In addition to local funding, eitas also provides direct services to eligible individuals for transportation and support coordination.
