Children's Long-Term Support

The Children's Long-Term Support (CLTS) Program provides services for children and young adults under the age of 22 with significant developmental, physical, or emotional disabilities. Supports and services are available to help waiver participants and their families to remain in their home or community. CLTS is a home and community-based service (HCBS) waiver that provides Medicaid funding for eligible children. Funding can be used to support a range of different services based on an assessment of the needs of the child and their family.
