Overview of DODD Waivers 

Waivers allow individuals to live in community settings of their choice with supports, rather than in an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) or other institution.

Currently, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities administers four waivers: the Individual Options (IO) waiver; the Level One waiver (Level I); The Self Empowered Life Funding (SELF Waiver); and, the Transition Waive (TDD). 

Information at the left can help you learn more about the waivers and their eligibility requirements. If you feel you are eligible for waiver services, contact your local County Board of DD and request an application for enrollment or to get on a waiting list.​
