Children's Long-Term Support Waivers
Information for County Agencies

Wisconsin’s Children’s Long-Term Support Waivers (CLTS Waivers) make Medicaid funding available to support children who are living at home or in the community and who have substantial limitations due to developmental, emotional, and/or physical disabilities. Funding may be used to support a range of different services that are identified based on an assessment of each individual child’s specific needs and identified goals or outcomes.

In Wisconsin, each county has at least one agency that is delegated the responsibility for implementing the CLTS Waivers according to procedures and guidelines created by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). DHS, as the State Medicaid Agency, has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that Medicaid Waiver funding is utilized in accordance with all rules established by the federal Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (exit DHS). To meet this responsibility, DHS provides county waiver agencies with a variety of resources and technical assistance opportunities.
