EDWP (SOURCE & CCSP) Waiver Services

What is the EDWP Program?

SOURCE + CCSP (Traditional/Enhanced) are part of the EDWP. Both SOURCE and CCSP assists individuals who are elderly and/or functionally impaired to remain in their homes and/or communities. For eligible consumers, EDWP offers community-based services as an alternative to nursing facility placement. The Department of Community Health administers and operates the EDWP.


  • A Medicaid waiver provides recipients certain services not normally covered by Medicaid for a person with intellectual, developmental, physical disabilities. These services can take place in the person’s home or in the community.
  • The Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program (formerly CCSP) serves frail, elderly, and disabled Georgians. It provides coordinated services in their home or community. 
  • The Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program can provide adult day care, alternative living services, personal care, home delivered meals, and respite care for family caregivers.
