Day Support Waiver

Important Notes

What makes someone eligible for the Day Support Waiver?

The Day Support Waiver provides community services for individuals who are six (6) years of age or younger who are at developmental risk and individuals who are over the age of six (6) years and have intellectual disability and are on the statewide waiting list for the ID Waiver. Individuals who are on the “non-urgent” as well as the “urgent” portions of the ID Waiver waiting list are eligible in order of their “date of need,” which is the date the individual is found to meet ID Waiver criteria and is willing to begin services within 30 days.


As with all Medicaid-funded services, there are also financial eligibility criteria.
