OCDD offers the following waiver services:

  • Children’s Choice Waiver offers supplemental support to children through age 18 who currently live at home with their families or with a foster family.
  • New Opportunities Waiver (NOW) offers people age 3 and older who otherwise would require the level of care of an Intermediate Care Facility for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF’s/DD) services that allow them to remain in their communities. Services are based on the need of the recipient and are developed using a person-centered process to formulate an individualized plan. 
  • Residential Options Waiver offers people of all ages services designed to support them to move from ICF’s/DD and nursing facilities to community based settings, and to serve as an alternative to institutionalization.
  • Supports Waiver offers focused, individualized vocational services to people age 18 and older who otherwise would require the level of care of an Intermediate Care Facility for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF’s/DD).

To apply for any of the above waivers, please contact the Regional Human Services District or Authority that serves your parish.
