Maryland Proposing New Community Supports Waiver

Topics: HCBS, HCBS Rule, State News,

Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) has designed a new Family Supports Waiver program. The program will provide individual and family supports for children birth to 21 with developmental disabilities who are on the DDA Waiting List. The new program is designed to provide services and supports to children with developmental disabilities and their families in their home and/or community after school, nights, weekends, and during summer months. The program was developed based on input from individuals on the DDA Waiting List and their families, the Family Supports Waiver Steering Committee, the Developmental Disabilities Coalition survey and recommendations, independent consultants' national research, and public regional input forums.  

The budget limit will be $12,000 plus the cost of targeted case management and Medicaid State Plan services.
