Regional centers must post information regarding how providers are doing with ensuring individuals served are part of their communities (Welfare and Institutions Code section 4519.2(b)). This information is to be updated at least every six months until DDS has determined that statewide compliance has been met.
Requests for Proposals (RFPs)
Lanterman Regional Center’s Community Services unit issues a Request for Proposals (RFP) when there is a need to develop specific homes, programs or specialized services for clients. Current RFPs can be downloaded from this page. RFPs may or may not have start-up funds available.
Please read the Using Request for Proposals to Address Client Service Needs policy first, as this process is used by Lanterman Regional Center to obtain formal offers from competing providers and evaluating those proposals against stated requirements, using predetermined evaluation criteria, weights and cost.
Development of New Licensed Residential Care Programs for Adults with Developmental Disabilities
The Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center is seeking proposals to develop ARM Level 2 and Level 3 long-term residential programs. The target population consists of adults with developmental disabilities, including intellectual and physical, and possibly a co-occurring mental health condition.
If you are interested in developing these services, please complete a proposal in accordance with the submission instructions below. The next three sections of the RFP briefly describe the service need, service specifications and procedures for vendorization.
NO START–UP FUNDS are available.
Deadline for Submission: This RFP will remain open until resources have been developed and the service need has been fulfilled. Applications that are incomplete, or do not meet the basic requirements will be disqualified. No proposals will be returned.
This RFP does not commit Lanterman Regional Center to procure or vendor the proposed service. No development funds are available for start-up activities and vendorization does not guarantee client referrals or purchases of service.
