DVR releases individuals from priority category 2 waiting list
Beginning Sept. 3, approximately 200 individuals in priority category 2 were released off DVR’s waiting list.
Thanks to additional funding from the 2019 Washington State Legislature, DVR will be able to continue releasing a limited number of individuals from the waiting list.
Depending on available funding, individuals will be released off the priority category 2 waiting list on the first business day of each month through June 2020.
On Nov. 1, 2017, DVR was required by federal law to implement an Order of Selection because DVR did not have sufficient resources to serve all eligible customers.
Under Order of Selection, services are prioritized first under priority category 1 for those individuals with the most-significant disabilities.
