Once the CDDO has received all your paperwork the eligibility process can begin, of which there are two components: program and functional.
Program eligibility first looks at whether you meet the definition of IDD as outlined in the DDRA (The Developmental Disabilities Reform Act). If you are determined program eligible, you will then be assessed with a functional assessment.
A functional assessment to determine if you are eligible for HCBS IDD funding.
If you are found functionally eligible for HCBS IDD funding then your name gets placed on the statewide waiting list. In the event you are found either program ineligible or functionally ineligible the CDDO will communicate this to you.
