When will I receive a decision about my application?

The applicant or the applicant’s family will receive a letter with the Board’s decision, whether it is an
approval or a denial. Care workers, social workers, or therapists who applied on behalf of another
individual should check with that individual to find out the status of the application.

We have specific applications for general requests, travel reimbursement, and technology requests.  If you have previously applied, you may be eligible to use the repeat general application.

Please be sure to use the correct application.
