Waiting List Priority Categorization

The Waiting List for waiver services is defined in Section 393.065(5), Florida Statutes and consists of the categories defined in the attached document. The Final Waitlist Prioritization Tool, dated March 15, 2013, was developed by the agency in conjunction with various stakeholders from around the state and is defined in the law as the mechanism by which the agency will determine who will receive offers for waiver enrollment when the agency has funding for enrolling individuals on the waiting list to the waiver.

If you are currently on the Agency’s waiting list for the iBudget Waiver program and there has been a change in circumstance or if you are in immediate need of services, please contact your local APD Regional office (click here for contact information) and request to speak to your assigned worker. You may also print the Annual Status Review form (click here to download) and provide us with an update.


The Florida Center for Inclusive Communities/UCEDD has recently launched a social media campaign called “Out Time is Now.” The aim is to educate the general public and legislators about the urgent need for increased funding to reduce Florida’s Developmental Disabilities iBudget Waiver Waiting List.
