Adult Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waiver Redesign Stakeholders 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:
On April 24, 2019, the Adult Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waiver Redesign stakeholders completed a process to select three Stakeholder Co-chairs, representing family members and providers. The Department has appointed a staff person as a fourth co-chair. These actions were the result of agreements made between stakeholders and the Department between March 12 and April 22, 2019 on a revised stakeholder engagement process for this work. The intent of this revision is to improve stakeholder engagement and transparency of this work. The role of these Stakeholder Co-chairs includes and is limited to the following:

In October 2013, the Department organized a Waiver Redesign Workgroup comprised of diverse stakeholder perspectives including individuals receiving services, their family members, professional advocates, and representatives from provider agencies and the Community Centered Boards. A comprehensive report was presented to the Department in April 2015. Please see the "Reports" section below to view this work.
Thereafter, the Department began evaluating and planning for the implementation of the Workgroup’s recommendations. In August 2016, the Waiver Redesign Workgroup transitioned to become the Waiver Implementation Council. The Council consulted and advised the Department in redesigning services and analyzing the fiscal, programmatic, and operational impacts of a redesigned waiver are in progress.
In October 2018, the Department and the Council expanded from a formal representative stakeholder process to more directly draw from the statewide stakeholder community’s consultation and advice for the remaining development and implementation of a redesigned waiver.
