Alaska Senior and Disability Services issued the following information this week:
"The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Senior and Disabilities Services (SDS) is seeking federal approval to establish a new home and community based Individualized Supports waiver (ISW) to serve up to 600 people who experience Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
