June 7, 2018 – The Department is very pleased to announce that the application for federal funding, or Waiver, for the Self-Determination Program was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This news represents an essential step toward providing people who receive regional center services and their families an alternative way to coordinate their services, with more freedom and control over how the services are provided and the individuals who support them. We would like to express sincere appreciation for the assistance and guidance from the Department’s self-determination advisory workgroup and other stakeholders, which has been instrumental in gaining CMS’ approval of the Waiver. We also thank and recognize the work and technical assistance received from many representatives of CMS and California’s Department of Health Care Services.

more information on Self Determination can be found here: https://www.dds.ca.gov/SDP/index.cfm

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.

This could  be a good option for  individuals  and families wanting more freedom, control, as well as responsibility in choosing services and supports.  NBRC, the State Council on Developmental Disabilities regional office, and Disability Rights-CA are working together to get information on SDP out to our community.
