Self Determination Advisory Committee Mtg – February 28th

On October 9, 2013 Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 468 into law, amending the Lanterman Act and mandating Regional Centers to implement a Self Determination Program. Per the law, the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) has applied for approval of federal funding for this new Self Determination Program as of December 31,2014. The application is still in review at the federal level. Meanwhile, Regional Centers, in partnership with our community are beginning planning.

Please join the Self Determination Advisory Committee meetings for more information. A list of these meeting times, agendas, and minutes can be found here:
