How do I get a waiver?

Call to be screened for eligibility for the Developmental Disability Waiver. Our staff will determine if you meet the state’s definition of a developmental disability and meet other criteria. If you qualify, you will be placed on a waiting list for a waiver. You will receive a priority rating based on your level of need. We will meet with you to assess your situation and needs and will determine if you have a priority level of 1,2, or 3.

This waiting list is not chronological but is based on need. In Virginia, there are more than 11,000 individuals on the waiting list. In our region, there are nearly 700.
