Assisted Living Waiver Institutes Waitlist
In March 2017, California’s Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP) reached its capacity of 3700 participants. The Department of Healthcare Services (DHCS) has instituted a waitlist, and on May 22, 2017 began accepting “Waitlist Request Forms.” Individuals interested in holding a spot on the waitlist should contact a Care Coordination Agency in their county to complete a one-page Waitlist Request Form. Please be advised that there are currently very significant wait times, due to the existing backlog of applications held by DHCS. Individuals are nevertheless encouraged to submit a Waitlist Request Form to hold a spot on the list and to demonstrate to the State that there is strong demand for this program, and a need for expansion. For more information, please contact CANHR at 1(800) 474-1116.
