How to Apply
Parents may contact the CompassWisconsin: Threshold consultant at 866-710-4054. The consultant will explain the program benefits and eligibility process, plus assist the family in deciding whether or not the children’s long-term support service is likely to be appropriate for their child. If the parent wishes to apply, the consultant will send the family an application packet.
Once the parent has completed all the paperwork and obtained the required documentation, the parent will need to call the Threshold consultant to set up the required home visit. The home visit is used to review the application materials for completeness, verify certain documentation, answer questions and give the consultant an opportunity to meet the family and child. Once all the application materials are complete, including required documentation, the consultant submits the child’s application to the Bureau of Children's Long-Term Support. The Bureau reviews all program eligibility criteria and sends the family a letter that specifies whether or not the child is eligible.
