Policy

The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has begun to phase-out funding for services provided in sheltered workshop settings (also referred to as “extended employment” or “sheltered employment”). As part of the first phase of this reform, the Supports Program, a new program in development at DDD that is expected to begin in FY2014, will not provide funding for services in these settings. Additionally, funding for these services will be phased-out of DDD’s Community Care Waiver (CCW) over the next twelve to eighteen months.
