Comprehensive Supports Waiver Program (COMP)

The COMP waiver program, which serves individuals with more intensive needs, primarily provides residential care for individuals with ID/DD. These individuals require comprehensive and intensive services and need out-of-home residential support and supervision or intensive levels of in-home services to remain in the community.

Goals for participants in the COMP program include:

  • Avoiding the need for institutional placement.
  • Increasing independence and quality of life of individuals with ID/DD who have intensive or¬†comprehensive support needs.
  • Facilitating the transition of institutionalized individuals to community living.
  • Offering opportunities statewide for participant direction by waiver participants who have intensive¬†or comprehensive support needs.
  • Ensuring the health, safety and welfare of COMP program participants.
