Important information for families who are on the Cap MR/DD waiting list.
The new Cap MR/DD waiver slots that were funded by the General Assembly are being released to the LMEs for immediate use.
The Division of Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities/ Substance Abuse Services ( Division of MH/DD/SAS) is allocating an additional 950 Supports Waiver slots and 225 Comprehensive Waiver slots.
The number of Cap MR/DD slots distributed to each LME is based on a formula developed by the General Assembly to equalize the distribution of slots across the state.
If you are on the Cap MR/DD waiting list:
1. Contact your case manger and LME Developmental Disabilities Coordinator to make sure your Cap application is up-to-date.
2. Check that your application has a current psychological and any other important information about your family member with autism and your family.
3. Ask if your LME is using the new prioritization tool
