Regional Advisory Committee:

Currently, the San Bernardino Regional Advisory Committee has vacant seats in both Inyo and Mono counties for the Regional Advisory Committee (RAC). The RAC should reflect the geographic and ethnic diversity of Inyo, Mono, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, and it supports the council mission to promote independence and productive lives by influencing public policy in areas such as education, employment, housing, inclusion and self- determination.

If you would like to get involved, and are a person with a developmental disability or family member ready to change lives by improving the disabilities system, contact us for more information or complete the Outreach Application by going to: http://goo.gl/forms/XeZDWlZWRa

Self Determination Advisory Committee:

The Department of Developmental Services is developing a new program, called the Self-Determination Program that will let participants have more control over selecting their services and supports. One of the ways this can be done is by giving participants (or their parents or legal representatives) a specific budget to purchase the services and supports that they need to make their person-centered plan work better for them. Participants may choose their services and pick which providers deliver those services. Participants are responsible for staying within their annual budget.
