There isn't enough information here - why have you applied to waive the 2 year home residency requirement? Is there another immigration status you are seeking?
I agree with Atty White.
(213) 394-4554 x0 Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
I assume that you already have determined that you otherwise may be eligible for a change of status to another nonimmigrant visa or for adjustment of status to Lawful Permanent Resident status, and you simply want to avoid needing first to fulfill a J-1 two-year home residency requirement. If that is so, the focus upon a waiver ordinarily will be whether a government agency paid significant costs on your behalf for the exchange visitor program.
Also note that if the program has terminated, you may be accruing "unlawful presence" that could make you become subject to a 3-year or 10-year bar to re-entering the U.S. Especially with such high stakes, it would be wise to engage an immigration attorney to assist you.

Possibly. It depends on the reason for termination. Was the program
terminated or were you terminated from the program for failing to comply
with its conditions? What basis you are apply for the waiver will also
be relevant. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for case
