The Children's Long-Term Support (CLTS) Waiver Program is a Home and Community-Based Service (HCBS) Waiver that provides Medicaid funding for children who have substantial limitations in their daily activities and need support ro remain in their home or community. Eligible children include those with developmental disabilities, severe emotional disturbances, and physical disabilities. Funding can be used to support a range of different services based on an assessment of the needs of the child and his or her family.
Governor Scott Walker and the Department of Health Services (DHS) released a video profile to demonstrate the importance of investing in children in need of long term care services. Governor Walker’s budget proposal includes $39 million to eliminate the children’s long term care wait list, strengthening Wisconsin’s stance as a national leader in our approach to serving the elderly and people with disabilities.
