Public Review of ELARC Proposal to Reduce Purchase of Service Disparity

Come and join us in an important discussion on September 11, 2019 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am in the ELARC Boardroom located at 1000 South Fremont in Alhambra, 91803.

ELARC is developing a proposal to promote equity and reduce POS disparities and we want to hear from you. Please come to review the proposal with us and share your ideas and input.

Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) section 4519.5 requires regional centers to annually collaborate with the Department of Developmental Services (Department) to gather data related to purchase of service (POS) authorization, utilization, and expenditures, by each regional center. This section also requires regional centers to undertake certain activities to identify significant disparities and barriers to equitable access to services and supports, and to develop recommendations and plans to reduce existing disparities. ABX2 1 (Chapter 3, Statutes of 2016), added WIC section 4519.5(h), which allocates $11 million to the Department to assist regional centers in the implementation of strategies to reduce POS disparities. Regional centers are required to meet with their communities to discuss proposed strategies to address disparities in the POS data, and then submit their proposals to the Department for review.

We want to hear from you, please join us!
