The Division currently maintains a waiting list for individuals requesting services through the Community Care Waiver.  An individual may request addition to this waiting list if they:

  • Meet the Division’s functional criteria in accordance with N.J.A.C. 10:46,
  • Are 18 years or older;
  • Are Medicaid eligible;  or
  • Were found eligible to receive Division services prior to January 22, 2013, were born prior to January 1, 1997 and are Medicaid eligible.

An individual currently served through the Department of Children and Families (DCF) may request addition to this waiting list if they meet the above standards.  It is important to note the Division of Developmental Disabilities may only provide services to individuals who are 21 years old who meet functional criteria and are Medicaid eligible.

In addition, in order to be enrolled on the CCW, individuals also must meet the specified level of care for CCW.  When an individual comes to the top of the CCW Waiting List, s/he will be eligible to enroll on the CCW and receive CCW services so long as all of the criteria are met at the time.
