Response on Wait List Funding from 2014 Legislative Session

·         The wait list funding from the legislature went into effect July 1, 2014. Funding letters are being distributed throughout the six months of 2014.

·         Not all persons on the wait list will receive a funding letter. We will fund everyone waiting 18 months or longer as of September 30, 2013 onto the Supports waiver, unless they meet the eligibility and emergency criteria for the Comprehensive Waiver.

·         A plan of care must be submitted to the Division within 3 months from the date of the funding letter or the funding opportunity will be lost and re-application for the waiver is required
