DDS Rate Study- Public Comment Period extended to April 5th

NBRC is requesting Public Comment on the rates paid to providers of services for individuals with Developmental Disabilities

Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 4519.8, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) contracted with Burns & Associates, Inc. to complete a rate study of the regional center rate system.  An overview of the rate study including project principles and tasks, as well as information on Burns & Associates, Inc., is available here

The rate study report was presented by Burns & Associates earlier this week (2/28/19) statewide. Documents found here  outline the proposed rates, along with the assumptions that informed the development of those proposed rates.

The public has until April 5th to provide feedback and comments on the rate study.  There are two ways to have your voice heard.

  1. NBRC is gathering input from the providers in the North Bay.  Please email comments to:

  2. Otherwise, you are welcome to respond directly to Burns & Associates at
