The Community Care Program is a Home and Community Based Services waiver-funded program that provides funding for supports and services that ensure individuals diagnosed with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities can live and thrive in the community of their choosing. This waiver program is vital to ensuring individuals who need supports and services avoid institutionalization. This funding is available for those over 21 and who choose to reside in a variety of community settings, whether it’s with their families, in licensed residential settings, or in other unlicensed settings. The services available in the Community Care Program allow for flexibility and choice based on the assessed need of the individual.
