Children's Long-Term Support Waiver (CLTS) Program

The Children's Long Term Support (CLTS) Waiver Program is a home and community based services waiver that provides Medicaid funding for children who have substantial limitations in their daily activities and need support to remain and thrive in their home or community. Eligible children include those with developmental disabilities, severe emotional disabilities, and physical disabilities. These services are delivered at the county level, while the Department of Health Services (DHS) provides the administration of the waiver program.
