Goals To increase access to waiver services for children and adults at the local level in participating counties. 
Objectives The objectives of the waiver are: 1) to increase the capacity of the State to meet the needs of individuals at risk of institutionalization who require minimal supports to continue living in integrated community settings; 2) to partner with local County Boards through Intergovernmental Agreements in the administration and funding of waiver services; and 3) to implement preventive services in a timely manner in order that eligible participants may continue living in the community with their families.
