The Community Waiver
Program targets persons with intellectual disabilities not currently receiving
services through the current Home and Community-Based Services Waivers,
including the persons currently on the waiting list for the existing
Intellectual Disabilities or Living at Home Waivers. The new waiver program
offers services in five enrollment groups, based on age and relative
independence, each with a set of services designed particularly to serve them.
The Community Waiver Program focuses on maintaining family
relationships and promoting community inclusion and competitive employment,
which are of utmost importance to an individual’s health, well-being, and
happiness, by providing the needed supports that can enable individuals with
developmental disabilities to continue to live with family or in their own

The goals of the
Community Waiver Program (CWP) include, but are not limited to the following:

      Improve access to care by reducing and eventually eliminating the
current waiting list for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS).

Keep families together, support independent living, and provide
increased opportunities for self-direction.

Adopt a strategy for delivering HCBS that aims to prevent crisis
and escalation of needs for individuals who do not currently require an
institutional level of care.

Support the capacities
that individuals with ID have to contribute to their community through
participation in integrated community employment, while also better ensuring
their financial stability in continuing to live in the community.

Program (CWP) is available on the following websites:
