Intellectual and Developmentally Disabled Waiver

Intellectual and Developmentally Disabled Waiver Program Overview

If you or someone you love has an intellectual or developmental disability, the Intellectual/Developmental Disability (I/DD) waiver is a great option for getting care in-home. You can get the support you need–right in your own home and community. This allows you or your loved one to continue living where you love. You also get to choose who delivers that care. In some cases, this can even be friends or family.
