Home and Community Based Waivers (HCBS)

The Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) offers five Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers:

  • Basic Plus
  • Children's Intensive In-home Behavioral Supports (CIIBS)
  • Community Protection         
  • Core
  • Individual and Family Services (IFS). 

Each of the five waivers provides an array of services tailored to the specific populations they serve. Waiver services provide additional support when Medicaid state plan services and other supports are not sufficient.  For more information about the waiver program, go to the Services and Information Request form, contact your Case Resource Manager, Social Worker, or regional DDA office.
