Waiver Implementation Council

Purpose

To provide guidance and advice to the Department on the development and implementation of a redesigned waiver to support adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The redesigned waiver will offer an array of services and supports that are flexible to the needs and preferences of the individuals who receive them, are available when and where they are needed, and incorporate the following principles:

  • Freedom of choice over living arrangements, social, community, and recreational opportunities
  • Individual authority over supports and services
  • Support to organize services in ways that are meaningful to the individual receiving services
  • Health and safety assurances
  • Opportunity for community contribution
  • Responsible use of public dollars

Reasonable accommodations for the meetings will be provided upon request for persons with disabilities.
