  • Efforts to Reduce Purchase of Service Disparities: Funds Available for FY 2018/19

      In 2016, ABX2 1 (Chapter 3, Statutes of 2016) added Welfare and Institutions (W&I) Code section 4519.5(h) to the W&I Code and allocated funds to the Department of Developmental Services (Department), to assist regional centers in the implementation of strategies to reduce disparities in the purchase of services (POS). In Fiscal Year (FY) 2016/17, the Department solicited regional center proposals and approved funding for projects to reduce disparities and promote equitable access to regional center services and supports. In 2017, trailer bill language amended W&I Code section 4519.5 to allow community based organizations (CBO) to apply for and receive funding to address disparities and/or equitable access to services. The Department is accepting proposals from regional centers and CBOs for funds available in FY 2018/19. Regional centers and CBOs are invited to respond to this call for applications for the Disparity Funds Program.  Read the full notice and download all the application materials on the DDS Website
