People can use a portion of their Passport funding for person-directed planning. It helps people with a developmental disability prepare life plans that lay out their distinct needs and goals. These plans can help them make the most out of funding and outline ways they can participate in community activities.

The planning process helps others understand the individual’s needs. It also helps the person achieve their goals.
