Community Waiver Program
The new waiver program targets to serve persons with intellectual disabilities (ID) not currently receiving services through a current home and community-based services waiver, including those on the waiting list for the existing Intellectual Disabilities or Living at Home waivers.
The program focuses on serving individuals and families before they are in crisis.
Service providers will focus on goals of home and community-based services programs such as community integration, opportunities for employment, and developing skills for independence.
The community waiver program will offer services to persons with intellectual disabilities in five enrollment groups, based on age and relative independence, each with a set of services designed to serve them:
- Children with ID (ages 3-13) who live with family/other natural supports
- Transition-age youth with ID (ages 14-22) who live with family/other natural supports or (ages 18-22) who live independently
- Working-age or older adults with ID (ages 23+) who live with family/other natural supports or who live independently
- Individuals with ID (ages 3+) who are unable to live with family/other natural supports or to live independently
- Individuals with ID (ages 22+) who have a minimum of one substantial functional limitation
Available for application in Baldwin, Elmore, Houston, Jefferson, Limestone, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery, Morgan, Tuscaloosa, and walker counties.
