Children’s Long-Term Support: Information for Counties

COVID-19 Updates

We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our members and participants during the COVID-19 pandemic. To stay informed about the latest program updates, limitations to in-person contacts, general COVID-19 resources, and more:

 

The Wisconsin Children’s Long-Term Support (CLTS) Program helps kids with disabilities and their families. Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) uses Medicaid funds to offer a range of services. County waiver agencies (CWAs) help families access these services. Support for a child and their family depends on their specific needs and goals.

CWAs can learn more about the program on this page.

CWAs

CWAs work with us and help run the program. DHS is responsible for making sure that all rules of the program are followed. We use program funds based on rules from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

As a CWA, you help connect families to services they need. That includes authorizing registered providers, who offer the services.

With the family, we find ways for a child to live their best life. We call our team approach Deciding Together.
