In mid-November 2008, the Division of Developmental Disabilities sent letters to 255 individuals - 75 adults and 180 children - inviting them to apply for community services funded by the Medicaid Home and Community-Based waivers for people with developmental disabilities. The individuals were selected from the statewide Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services (PUNS) database.
The following tables show the distribution of individuals by selection category, age, geography and by length of time on PUNS.
Note: Because some individuals have more than one diagnosis, the sum of individual diagnoses is more than the number of individuals selected.
