The State of California minimum wage increases to $13.00 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees and $12.00 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees on January 1, 2020. The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) has been allocated additional funds by the Legislature for dissemination to service providers to meet the increased minimum wage mandate. It is important to note that the funds allocated by DDS are solely to meet a service provider's costs to increase employee/staff wages to $13.00 per hour (or $12.00 per hour based on the number of employees) and the associated mandated costs (i.e. Social Security, Medicare and workers’ compensation). Please click on the link below to read the letter from DDS, then click on the Workbook link to complete your request for a rate adjustment. SPECIAL NOTE: Only one rate adjustment request per workbook. You must submit one workbook for each vendor number. REMINDER: The deadline to submit is March 1, 2020. Requests submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
Network of Care - Service Providers/Vendored Resources
As part of the requirement of SB 74, per WIC 4629.5(b)(6) regional centers are required to make available a listing of our service providers/vendored resources, including name, type of service and contact information. This information was included on Lanterman's Network of Care site, which is a listing of community-based resources for children and adults that are close to where you live.
This database not only includes resources that integrate children and adults with developmental disabilities into regular programming and activities with their non-disabled peers, but also includes specialized programs serving only people with developmental disabilities.
Our objective in listing all of these resources in one site is to better inform the Individualized Planning Process (IPP). Your family member’s IPP is the guide to the services and supports that he or she will need. The Network of Care gives clients and families direct access to the resources that are available. When more than one resource is available that may meet your family member’s needs, your service coordinator can help you make an informed choice in accordance with the Regional Center’s service standards.
Visit Lanterman's Network of Care at www.lanterman.networkofcare.org.
For more information on the IPP process you may consult the “Guide to the Regional Center.” An online version of the Guide can be accessed by clicking here.
