Disparity Project announcement 2019.20_Spanish

North Bay Regional Center wants to make sure that we are continuously improving.

We strive to exceed our mission, desired outcomes, and that we are in compliance with all requirements.

The Disparity Funds Program supports projects that aim to increase equity in service access.

Proposals must link to an identified issue or barrier in the local community or statewide, which has been identified through POS data, stakeholder feedback, and/or RC plans and recommendations to promote equity and reduce disparities.

We continue to fulfill all planned activities with the intent of improving outcomes as directed by our community members, Board of Directors, and NBRC staff.

How do we continue to improve in our efforts to address disparities in purchases of service?

We are continuing activities from this year and prior years, such as the continued outreach and education, staff training, use of social media, providing orientation to Regional Center services to new families, and increased collaboration with community partners:

  • Promotora project

  • Translation of materials and information into Spanish and Tagalog

  • Cultural Sensitivity presentations to staff and vendors

  • Agency-wide implementation of Person Centered Thinking, Planning, and Practices

You are invited to hear a presentation of our proposed plan and provide your input. We will present the plan and listen to your comments at the Solano Co Office of Education on Tues, Sept 17, 2019 from 6-8pm.
