Developmental Disability (DD) Waiver

Virginia's Developmental Disability Waiver Program is complex, complicated and subject to change. 

Here we have  DD Waiver topics for more information to help you navigate the DD Waiver.
Remember, parent income is never considered for Medicaid Waiver eligibility. 
Contact The Arc of Virginia if you have questions or need assistance with accessing and/or using the DD Waiver Program.
