California’s Self-Determination Program is a Opt-in program for regional center consumers that was signed into law in October 2013. The Self-Determination Program provides participants with developmental disabilities more flexibility, control, and responsibility in choosing the services and supports they need guided by their person-centered plan and Individual Program Plan for their preferred future.
On October 01, 2018, the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDS) selected a total of 2,500 participants across all 21 regional centers in California. For individuals interested in the Self-Determination Program who were not selected as part of the 2,500 slots, this voluntary regional center program will open to all eligible individuals in June 2021.
