What is Children’s Long Term Support Waiver Program?

The purpose of the waivers is to help families support their children with severe disabilities within their own home.  The CLTS Waivers are funded through Medicaid and local funding.  They are known as Medicaid Waivers because the federal government “waived” certain regulations so that Medicaid dollars can pay for services in the community.  The CLTS Waivers began in 2003 and were developed as a part of the Children’s Long-Term Support Redesign Project in Wisconsin.
