ABX2-1 Funding Proposal to Promote Equity and Reduce Disparities
Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) section 4519.5 requires regional centers to annually collaborate with the Department of Developmental Services (Department) to gather data related to purchase of service (POS) authorization, utilization, and expenditures, by each regional center. This section also requires regional centers to undertake certain activities to identify significant disparities and barriers to equitable access to services and supports, and to develop recommendations and plans to reduce existing disparities.
Legislation, ABX2 1 (Chapter 3, Statutes of 2016), added WIC section 4519.5(h), which allocates $11 million to the Department to assist regional centers in the implementation of strategies to reduce POS disparities.
NLACRC submitted a funding proposal on September 9, 2016 and received a response from DDS on October 25, 2016. You can view the proposal and letter from DDS regarding the approved funding by clicking on the link below.
