(This amendment provides $7.3 million from the general fund and $7.3 million from federal Medicaid matching funds each year for an additional 400 Medicaid waiver slots to reduce the priority one waiting list. The Governor's budget included 755 Community Living (CL) and Family and Individual Support (FIS) slots in accordance with the DOJ Settlement Agreement, which does reduce the waiting list. This funding further reduces the priority one waiting list by adding 52 CL slots and 348 FIS slots in fiscal year 2019. The priority one waiting list includes individuals currently in need of waiver services.)
