Participants on the current Adult DD Waiver will transition to the new waiver between April 1 and September 28, 2014. Child DD Waiver will transition between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015.

Response on Wait List Funding from 2014 Legislative Session

 

 · The wait list funding from the legislature goes into effect July 1, 2014. Funding letters will not be distributed until the money is available.

· Funding letters will be sent out on a priority basis: people who meet emergency criteria are funded first, then the people who have been waiting the longest, until the appropriation (new funding) is fully committed.

· Not all persons on the wait list will receive a funding letter. We will fund everyone waiting 18 months or longer as of September 30, 2013 onto the Supports waiver, unless they meet the eligibility and emergency criteria for the Comprehensive Waiver.

· Funding letters will be mailed out over a three month period after July 1.

· A plan of care must be submitted to the Division within 3 months from the date of the funding letter or the funding opportunity will be lost and re-application for the waiver is required.
