ETHNIC DIVERSITY & EXPENDITURES REPORTS

Per recent amendment to the Lanterman Act (Section 4519.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code), all regional centers are required to provide a report of our expenditures across identified demographic groups (e.g., by disability, by age, by race or ethnicity, or by language) and to hold a public meeting with stakeholders regarding the data.

NBRC collaborates with the Department of Developmental Services to prepare this report. We encourage you to keep limitations to this report in mind when reviewing the data.

For example:
• Due to limitations in the statewide Uniform Fiscal System, not all expenditures can be reflected in this report. For example services that we purchase under a contract, such as some supported employment services, transportation, etc are not counted in this data.
• It also does not include authorized expenditures for services which have been provided but have not yet been billed to the regional center by service providers.
• This report does not reflect services in Individual/Family Service Plans that are funded by MediCal, Supplemental Security Income, health plans, etc

NATIONAL CORE INDICATORS

Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 4571 mandates the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to identify and implement a nationally validated quality assessment tool that enables DDS to monitor the performance of California’s developmental disabilities service system and assess quality and performance among regional centers. The National Core Indicator (NCI) survey instrument was chosen as the quality assessment tool in 2009. NCI is a multi-state collaboration; Developmental disability agencies in forty-one states and the District of Columbia voluntarily participate in the NCI program. To read more about NCI and see NBRC’s survey results, click here for the DDS page.
