(This amendment adds $1.8 million from the general fund and $1.8 million in federal matching Medicaid funds to serve an additional 140 persons in the Medicaid Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support (DD) waiver. The DD waiver has a waiting list of approximately 680 people with developmental disabilities as of January 12, 2009, many of whom are experiencing crisis situations that require immediate intervention during fiscal year 2010. These slots will decrease the community waiting list by 20 percent during the 2008-10 biennium pursuant to House Bill 1853.)
