WV Governor Directs to Eliminate Waitlist for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waiver
Per a recent press release, West Virginia Governor Justice announced that he has directed the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) to immediately initiate a formal study to determine options for eliminating the waitlist for the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waiver (IDDW) program. Governor Justice has directed the study be delivered to him by January, 15, 2020. Elimination of the waitlist would allow 1,060 more West Virginians, including 606 children, to receive services through this waiver program. The IDDW program gives individuals the choice of receiving support and services in their home and community instead of in an institutional setting.
