Mother and Child Talking

Overview

In October of 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed into law the Self-Determination Program, which will provide consumers and their families with more freedom, control, and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet objectives in their Individual Program Plan.

In the Welfare and Institutions Code Section 4685.8, the services and supports will be directed by a participant through person-centered planning, as they are designed to assist the participant to achieve personally defined outcomes in community settings that promote inclusion.

During the first three years of the Self-Determination Program, enrollment was limited to 2,500 people.

Next Steps…

Self Determination is reaching a milestone in its implementation. It is expected to roll out on July 1, 2021.

Requirements to participate are:

  • Age 3+ and have active status (not closed, or inactivated)
  • Only use funds to meet IPP goals
  • Only use funds when generic resources are not available
  • Only use funds on federally approved services
  • Use a vendored FMS agency
  • Attend an Orientation

Upcoming Orientations

If you are interested in choosing Self Determination as your service delivery model the first step is to attend an Orientation. Regional Center of East Bay is offering Orientations in Spanish and English via Zoom. Orientations will require advanced registration with email, name, and UCI#. Please refer to RCEB report (IPP, IPP Addendum) for this information.
