Community Developmental Disabilities Grant Program

The Community DD Grant Program (CDDG) addresses the needs of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities for Habilitation, which is the acquisition or maintenance of skills to live with independence and improved capacity, and reduces the need for long-term care.  Services that a person with an Intellectual and/or developmental disability (IDD) may receive from the Program vary depending upon the person's age and uniques needs.

Services include support employment, respite care, care coordination, day habilitation, case management, and specialized equipment.  For those who meet diagnostic and income limits, the Home and Community Based Waiver Program (Alaska Medicaid) may provide similar services.  However, everyone having a intellectual and/or developmental disability doesn't qualify for the Waiver Program. CDDG allows cost effective services to be provided that is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and the families that may be primary care givers.
