The Department of Human Services' Division of Developmental Disabilities maintains the Community Care Waiver (CCW) Waiting List (a waiting list for determination of eligibility for enrollment on the CCW). An annual status update letter is mailed to all individuals who are in the Priority Category of the Waiting List. (Letters are not sent to individuals in the General Category of the Waiting List.)

An individual may request addition to the CCW 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
-  were found eligible to receive Division services prior to January 22, 2013, were born prior to January 1, 1997, and are Medicaid eligible.

Individuals who meet the above standards and are currently served through the Department of Children and Families (DCF) may request addition to the CCW Waiting List. Please note, however, that the Division of Developmental Disabilities only provides Division-funded services to individuals who are 21 years of age or older; who meet the DDD functional criteria; and who are Medicaid eligible.

To be enrolled on the Community Care Waiver, individuals also must meet the specified level of care for CCW at the time they are reached on the Waiting List.
