DT&H services are available in 81 Minnesota counties and serve more than 12,000 people.



Eligibility is determined through a screening process. To be eligible, a person must meet all of the following conditions:

  • Be 18 or older and have a diagnosis of developmental disability or a related condition

  • Make an informed choice to receive DT&H as part of their Individual Service Plan.

People who get DT&H services under the Developmental Disability Waiver must have at least one residential service provided through the waiver.

People who reside in an ICF/DD and those who receive a home and community-based waiver have a choice of day services.
