The Community Waiver Program (CWP)

The Community Waiver Program (CWP) is currently available in Baldwin, Elmore, Houston, Jefferson, Limestone, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery, Morgan, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties. The CWP focuses on serving individuals before they and/or their families are in crisis. Service providers in this new program focus on important goals of Home and Community-Based Services programs such as community integration, opportunities for employment, and developing skills for independence.

The new waiver program offers services to persons with intellectual disabilities in five enrollment groups, based on age and living situation, each with a set of services designed particularly to serve them:

Group 1: Children (ages 3-13) with intellectual disabilities who live with family or other natural supports

Group 2: Transition-age youth with intellectual disabilities who (ages 14-21) live with family or other natural supports or who (ages 18-21) live independently

Group 3: Working-age or older adults (ages 22+) with intellectual disabilities who live with family or other natural supports or who live independently

Group 4: Persons (ages 3+) with intellectual disabilities who are unable to live with family or other natural supports or to live independently

Group 5: Working-age or older adults (ages 22+) with intellectual disabilities, who don’t qualify for the level of care offered in Group 3 but need home and community-based services to maintain community living and/or work in the community.
