In FY 2013, Minnesota spent $1,682,313,990 for developmental disability community services, a 0.7% increase over the previous year. Also in FY 2013, of the persons with developmental disabilities in out-of-home residential settings, 93% were in settings of 1-6 persons; 3% were in settings of 7-15 persons; and 4% were in settings of 16+ persons.

In FY 2013 in Minnesota, home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver spending was 73% of total spending on developmental disabilities (compared to 51% nationally). Minnesota spent an average of $64,252 per person on the Developmental Disability (DD) waiver.

Of the people with developmental disabilities receiving Minnesota long-term care services, 91.9% received home and community-based services in 2013, up from 90.9% in 2009.
