The Family Cost Participation Program (FCPP) is established for the purpose of assessing a cost participation to parents of children who receive three specific regional center services: day care, respite, and/or camping. The Family Cost Participation Program is being implemented by the 21 regional centers statewide and applies to families who meet the following criteria:

  1. The child has a developmental disability or is eligible for services under the California Early Intervention Services Act.
  2. The child is zero through 17 years of age.
  3. The child lives in the parents’ home.
  4. The child is not eligible for Medi-Cal.

Please visit the DDS website for more information. 

The Department of Developmental Services, in conjunction with the regional centers and the Association of Regional Center Agencies (ARCA), developed a Family Cost Participation Program Guide that describes the FCPP.

A calculator has been created to calculate a family’s cost participation. (Note: Microsoft Excel is required to use the calculator).
