Supports for Community Living Waiver Branch
The Supports for Community Living (SCL) Waiver Branch of the Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) provides staff support for and oversight of the Supports for Community Living waiver program. The SCL waiver program is a home- and community-based program funded by the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services and administered by DDID.
The SCL waiver program was developed for Kentucky citizens as an alternative to institutionalization. The focus of SCL is to allow a person to remain in or return to the community. Persons with developmental or intellectual disabilities who meet the requirements for residence in an Intermediate Care Facility for persons with Intellectual Disabilities, and who meet other Medicaid requirements, are eligible for this program.
Application to the SCL waiting list requires that an "Application for SCL Waiver and Intellectual/Developmental Disability (I/DD) Services" form (MAP-620) be completed and submitted to DDID. This form is accessible on the SCL Forms page through its link in the Related Links box.
Supports for Community Living offers the supports and services listed below. These are based on the individual's goals, choices and priorities as identified through an individual support plan.
