Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID)

The Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD solicits Requests for Information/Proposals for services, equipment and supplies related to our operations. The following links are provided as resources in the request process. Select the link for the process or service of your choice. You will be directed to the specific public notice and format that is applicable to that service. PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY. It is the responsibility of the potential vendor/contractor to comply with the submission requirements as outlined in the Request for Information/Proposal Notice. The Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID) program is a community-based residential service option provided in homes with six or fewer individuals. This ICF/IID program provides similar services provided in an HCS residential home. The services include staff available to assist individuals with identified needs, access to medical care, the opportunity to attend Day Habilitation or similar programs, and participation in community activities. 


If you choose to access the ICF/IID residential option, you are able to keep your current placement on interest lists for home and community-based waiver services, such as HCS, Texas Home Living, Community Living Assistance and Support Services, and Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities programs.



For information about the ICF/IID program, please visit the Texas Health and Human Services Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF/IID) page. Information at https://www.hhs.texas.gov/search/providers/icf allows you to search ICFs/IID homes with vacancies by county, city or zip code. It also lists any special services or areas of expertise.



If you are interested in this residential option, contact us at 713-970-7000. We will assist you in applying for the service. The application process for admission to an ICF/IID involves sharing an individual’s diagnosis and medical and support needs with ICF/IID providers to ensure they have the appropriate services and resources to best meet an individual’s needs.
