The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Unit

Alaska

~~“The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Unit is responsible for monitoring service providers and supports systems serving individuals who experience an intellectual or developmental disability. The IDD Unit oversees the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities waiver (IDD waiver) and, in spring 2018, the new Individualized Supports Waiver (ISW).

The new Individualized Supports Waiver (ISW) was developed to replace the Community Developmental Disabilities Grant (CDDG) program, which will end June 30, 2018. The ISW will also extend supports to individuals who had not been covered by the grant program.”

The purpose of both waivers is to offer qualified participants a choice between home and community-based services or supports in an institutional setting.”
