Have you or your family member recently been approved for the WV Title XIX Home and Community Based Medicaid Waiver Program?

Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) Wait List Support Grant

You or your family member may be eligible for services provided by the WV Waiver Wait List Grant. 

PURPOSE

The purpose of the I/DD Wait List Support Grant is to provide needed services/supports, on an interim basis, to individuals who are awaiting access to a WV I/DD Waiver slot. These services are designed to meet some of the applicant’s needs while they await access to the full menu of services provided by the I/DD Waiver.

ELIGIBILITY

This grant targets individuals who have been approved for, but have not been allocated a slot in, the WV I/DD Waiver program. The use of grant funding will provide access to services such as Respite, Supported Employment, Facility Based Day Habilitation, and Behavior Support Professional because they are the supports most frequently requested by individuals and their families. To be eligible for participation in this program, an individual must be:

  • On the WV I/DD Waiver wait list;
  • Living in a natural family home setting;
  • A citizen of the State of West Virginia; and
  • Applying for the Aged and Disabled Waiver (A&D) (if over 18 years of age) and Personal Care services as offered through the State Medicaid Plan.
  • Applying for Supported Employment through Department of Rehabilitation Services to be eligible for Supported Employment

How to Apply:  Contact our Statewide Intake Coordinator and/or click here for a link to the I/DD Wait List Support Grant Application.  (insert link to application)
