Supported Living Services Waiver (SLS)

The Supported Living Services (SLS) waiver services for adults with developmental disabilities are used to supplement already available supports for individuals who either can live independently with limited supports or, if they need extensive support, are principally supported from other sources, such as the family.

The person receiving services is responsible for his or her living arrangements which can include living with family or in their own home.  Up to three persons receiving services can live together.  The person receiving services must not require 24-hour supervision paid for only by SLS.
