Community Care Program Waiting List

Individuals determined eligible for Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) services can enroll and begin receiving services in the Supports Program at any time.

The Community Care Program (CCP) waiting list is a tool that enables individuals and their families to notify the Division of a potential need for CCP enrollment. 

Addition to the waiting list is not a guarantee of CCP enrollment. Determination of eligibility and need for CCP enrollment can be made at the time an individual is reached on the waiting list.
